I speak to you not of the Liberal Party of Canada, but of liberals people in general.
When the Liberal Party was losing the last election, most of us on the left were pretty realistic. Our best hope at the beginning of the election was to run some sort of ABC campaign to somehow forge a left coalition. As the days wore on and it was obvious that Dion wasn't picking up votes, we understood that a Conservative minority was coming and the best we could do was prevent a majority.
It doesn't seem to work that way for Conservatives.
Look at this guy. Even though there's a monstrous number of polls showing Obama leading by insurmountable margins, a single Zogby poll is enough to sway him.
The other guy wants to pray for a McCain win.
I can't imagine what they're saying over at Free Republic. But they're always crazy there, so maybe it doesn't count.
My point is simply that, despite our apparently airy-faery, touchie-feelie crazy pinko communist way, we seem to be a lot more in touch with reality than our opponents.
That's got to work out for us, somehow, in the long run.
