Try to Look on the Bright Side
I found this over at WikiPedia. Maybe it'll lift the sagging spirits of some of you New Dem party faithful.
Sure, Tom Mulcair led your party to the loss of 51-seats in the election yesterday. But still the Mulcair NDP won 44-seats.
Now, do you realize that makes Mr. Mulcair the second most successful NDP leader in its history? 44-seats is one more than Ed Broadbent managed to win in the 1988 runoff.
So it's Layton in first place, Mulcair in second and Broadbent a very close third. Not so bad after all now is it?
