Mea Culpa

I'll be honest where Paul Wells has been silent:


I really figured Dion was going to be the perfect match-up to Harper - quiet, serious, intellectual policy addict vs. quiet, serious, intellectual policy addict. I said at the time, "Get ready for the most attention-demanding national debate ever". But instead, Dion is resorting too often to empty rhetoric, typical of a politician, and Harper has shown himself a tad too cynical in his actions too often: he is indeed a strategist, not a policy wonk.

Between them, I guess I'll take Harper. Dion is optimistic, and I appreciate and value that quite a lot. But I'm not sure he's very pragmatic.  In the end, I believe I'll vote Green - we'll see.
