Harper:northern US VP
There is an idea floating around that Harper is now free of George Bush as an albatross and thus free to become his own man. My guess is that Harper, while a conservative republican ideologue, is also a man in constant search of someone with pragmatic ideas since he has none of his own. Everything Harper is doing about the economy now was what Dion said he would do in the first answer he gave to CTV's garbled question. Harper is a follower, not a leader, and the politics he follows most are American politics. Once he followed Bush, now he is now following Obama. We need a PM who does not think of himself as the American VP of Canada.
