A look at the neighbours
If you're not tired yet of exploring all the ways, good and bad, that the U.S. presidential race is making itself felt in Canada, it's worth picking up the newest issue of Policy Options, the magazine put out by the Institute for Research on Public Policy.
For a balanced look, for instance, on what an Obama presidency would look like from Canada's perspective, you could check out Graham Fox's article, titled "Yes We Can: Is Barack Obama changing politics?" (.pdf) Fox, by the way, is the past provincial Conservative candidate in Orleans, a former chief of staff to Joe Clark and certainly a person in his own right. But given that this is a Star website, we feel we have to mention that he's also the son of Bill Fox, who was a bit of a legendary Ottawa bureau chief here at the Star a couple of decades ago.
David Herle, former campaign chief and long-time confidant of Paul Martin, has written on the polls and pundits and how they've been getting it so wrong in the U.S. race. Worth thinking about in light of all those who were saying that Alberta's election yesterday was potentially going to weaken the provincial Conservatives and "special Ed" Stelmach.
