Trudeau's interviews: carbon price yes, tax increases no, childcare bonus maybe, coalition no. CBC panel ranks him #1 pol to watch next year. So a bit of a retreat on childcare.

Fiore has been removed as majority leader and tax chairman, with 2 moderates taking her place for those respective slots. Sandoval will still need a lot of luck for his tax package, though...

Back to federal politics: CBC panel believes 1) economy/jobs 2) leadership/ethics 3) energy/environment 4) national security 5) surplus will be top electoral issues. My list would be Economy, Energy, Leadership.

Typically great article from UC's Paul Fairie on Alberta's saga being continuous with its history of business dynasties.

Fiorina is hiring a political and comms director, launch imminent. Hopefully the retreads and jokes drop out before debates start.

Splendid news!
This.

Honestly, I was a little surprised that the GOP's House gains this year weren't bigger.  It was a reverse of 2010; that year, we had big gains in the House and small gains in the Senate, but this year, the Senate was where we had our biggest gains.

GOP is nosing its ceiling, that's why. Even seats like IA-1 and NV-4 are probably rentals.

I don't think Rubio cares at all about the Senate seat.  He only ran for Senate in order to use it as a stepping stone for a presidential run.  Now, it's possible that he nonetheless bows out of a presidential run this time, and goes for Senate again, to bide his time for a future run...but only if he thinks that 2020 or 2024 will be a more favorable time for him than 2016.


Agreed, but out of public office entirely if he loses nom & keeps to his "up or out" mantra?

Rubio: if you decide to run for President, you do so because you want to be President, not you want to be POTUS unless someone else wants to be POTUS first.

Sanchez: there's plenty of time for him to drop down, but he's said he doesn't want to do that. A pity IMO, especially since the Leg might not be averse to changing the law.

Braid suggesting Smith gets Treasury Board and Anderson Solicitor-General by splitting those portfolios.
