Why Stephen Harper Won the Election

Jeff Sallot of the Globe and Mail makes a convoluted case about Paul Martin blowing the campaign and Stephen Harper's successful makeover of himself and party.

On a superficial level hindsight is always 20/20. But I prefer to think the Tories won simply because the timing was right for a change. People were fed up with Liberal corruption and wanted to make a statement.

It's all about timing and Harper was in the right place at the right time. He won by default. It's really that simple.

Harper can count himself lucky. If it were not for the corruption he would still be a westerner on the outside looking in.

Yep just dumb luck no really dumb luck. No wait he actually organized himself and spent the last year campaigning. So when he finally came out the shoot he was Mr. Middle. Which made him less scarty than the frantic Martin. Martin shot himself in the foot and Harper didn't goof up. So it was just a little bit more than a case of scandal.

Thanks eugene. From where I stand most people just wanted a "change". That was the recurring theme. Near the end of the race even Harper strayed from the script, but it seems that "change" was more important to Canadians than anything else.
