I donít think so, Machjo, people have written obituary of Liberal Party many times before. It is mainly wishful thinking by conservatives, nothing more.
Liberals governed for 13 years, it is natural that now they are the weaker party. Indeed, if you look at other countries, I think Liberals have held out very well. Look at Australia. After Howard won three majorities in a row, the Labour party came roaring back. They are in power federally and in each and every state of Australia, a total sweep of power.
Look at USA. After Republicans controlled Presidency, Senate and House for six years, Democrats made a clean sweep in 2006 and 2008.
In UK, after Conservatives won four majorities in a row, labour party came back with a bang, with Tony Blair and won three majorities in a row.
Compare that to Canada. Harper has not been able to take advantage of the Liberal weakness, he again failed to get a majority this time around. That itself was quite an achievement on Liberalsí part, they kept Conservatives from getting a majority.
And now there is some chance we may again have a Liberal PM, Dion. So any talk of death of Liberal party is wishful thinking by the Conservatives.
