Charest will hold his own
Reading the tea leaves as much as I can, I'm going to predict a stronger than expected outcome for Jean Charest in tomorrow's Quebec provincial election.
While the Liberal leader is making some strong pitches for a majority government, Parti Quebecois boss Andre Boisclair is resorting to the bizarre argument that he's still going to have a referendum even in a minority Parliament.
That means that Boisclair is doing all he can to hold on to his base, while Charest is trying to appeal to swing voters.
I don't know about you, but being on offence in a close game is better than being on defence. We'll see.
