Not-so-sleepy Joe: U.S. President Joe Biden's Democrats outperformed the historical trend in the Nov. 8, 2022, midterm elections. According to The Cook Political Report’s Amy Walter, the election hinged on what she termed the 'meh voters,' defined as independents, Americans not registered as either Republicans or Democrats.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, left, and Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre. Trudeau could seek a less controversial division, such as splitting up Canadians between those who want change in government and those who favour keeping the status quo. We’ll have to wait and see how Poilievre's pollsters come up with a way to divide and conquer.

It doesn’t matter if Justin Trudeau isn’t to blame for the onset of inflation, it doesn’t matter if it’s worse in other countries, it doesn’t matter if there’s no short-term, painless way to stop it; at the end of the day, all that matters is he’s the prime minister and the loonie ultimately stops at his desk, writes Gerry Nicholls.

The charm offensive: Imagine if newly minted Conservative Leader Pierre Poilievre, pictured on Sept. 12, 2022, with his wife Anaida and their son Cruz, sent out a seemingly handwritten letter on his own letterhead to party donors that said something like, 'Dear Joe; it’s late at night and I’m sitting here in my study worried about our party’s finances. The bills for the leadership campaign are piling up on my desk. That’s why I’m writing to you.

It's too crazy an idea to even contemplate, since former prime minister Stephen Harper is happily retired from partisan politics.
