Federal NDP Leadership Race Down to the Wire

http://live.ndp.ca/leadership2012

Well, the Federal NDP Leadership race is down to the wire, now, with Thomas Mulcair facing off against Brian Topp. Mulcair is running on an ill-defined platform of party "modernization" while Topp vows to fight for social democratic values while cooperating with emerging social movements. In an era of increasing income inequality and a renewal of leftwing populism, New Democrats can only hope Mulcair doesn't mean political half-heartedness and unprincipled capitulation. New Democrats should hope that he displays his combative rhetorical skills against the Conservative manufactured majority and not social democratic activists.

  1. But he does seem to have a requisite "toughness" that might be useful in fending of Con attacks.
