Question of the Day - April 20th

CBC.ca "Inside Politics" Question of the Day:

Will your vote be influenced by the possibility of another minority government?
2724 readers voted: Yes - 18.39%, No - 80.98%, Unsure - 0.62%

I sometimes comment on these daily questions. This was my comment today:

"Why would anyone who knows anything about our system of parliamentary representative democracy be worried about a possible minority government? Only a populist demagogue who's after nothing but personal power would rail against it. Minority government only means you need to be able to get along with people. Who among our political leaders is incapable of getting along with other political leaders? Do I really need to spell this out? Go on Harpocritters, let's hear your arguments!"

105 people gave this comment "Thumbs Up"
6 people gave it "Thumbs Down"

Usually my comments get about 2/3 for, 1/3 against (reflecting the national support for the Harpocritters) - today's result is a record. Just thought I'd share it with you. ;-)
