What do the Canadians think?

I've noticed that the political forum is dominated by American politics. So, I'm wondering what our neighboring friends in Canada think of all this hoopla? Big smile

Are you pullling more for one candidate? If yes, who & why?

I venture to guess they think we're crazy and they're not coming near these discussions with a ten foot pole. Big smile

What do the Canadians think?

Well tonight I plan to watch the Palin/Byden debate and starting tomorrow am with Robin Meade and straight through to Anderson Cooper late tomorrow night and probably all weekend, it will be a repeat of the same old thing. I don't think the good people of the U S of A deserve this much torture. It's just too much for too long.
In contrast, there was a Federal election called her in Canada a few weeks ago. The election is before the USA election(about six weeks of campaigning) and those elected will have three months experience under their belt BEFORE there is a new US President in place
I follow US politics and spend about four hours daily on various news networks but at least in Canada the stories change within a few hours, not a few weeks. Tomorrow, the same old thing, Robin Meade, Wolf Blitzer,Jack Cafferty, Lou Dobbs, Glen Beck, Larry King,Campbell Brown, Anderson Cooper and a few more disecting the same, constipated story and thats just on CNN channels.
Thank God I got The Internet Thumbs up

Gotta go, The Debate starts in three minutes !!

I am a total news and ploitics junkie but the US election is just too much.....................seems like the nesxt election starts the day after the swearing in. I guess that is the only way a person can raise the billion dollars needed to run at the job.
I find the Canadian 6 week election about right.............time enough for the issues without boring the less interested public.
For sure, elections should not be allowed during hunting season.

I like the idea of reducing the time to campaign down to 6-8 weeks. The campaigning goes on for WAY too long here! We all grow weary of the constant barrage of political ads.
