Stupid poll of the day

Canadians prefer Obama? ...over their own leaders? Just goes to prove Canadians desperately want to be Americans...and don't like their own country...The Canadian PM should be very depressed today with this news (I'm sure he hates sitting at the "kid table" at all the important U.N meetings already) since he would loose an election to some one not even Canadian. From CTV:

A new poll suggests Canadians would prefer to vote for Barack Obama rather cast a ballot for their own political leaders, while 45 per cent of Americans envy Canada's health care system. ...The bi-national survey, conducted by the Strategic Counsel for CTV and The Globe and Mail, showed that here in Canada, Obama was more admired than Prime Minister Stephen Harper -- or any other national leader. ..."Some would read (the results) as an indictment of our political leaders," the Strategic Counsel's Peter Donolo told "Others would say it's an acknowledgement of the phenomenal nature of Obama's appeal. He really is a prototype of his own; he's broken the mold." ...Stephane Dion trailed far behind the other leaders, just ahead of Republican presidential nominee John McCain:

Barack Obama: 26 per cent
Stephen Harper: 21 per cent
Hillary Clinton: 16 per cent
Jack Layton: 9 per cent
Gilles Duceppe: 6 per cent
Stephane Dion: 5 per cent
John McCain: 3 per cent

I've followed Canadian politics for a decade, and I really think you need to cut Stephen Harper some slack. He's one of the best friends America has (under his government, Canada remains one of only four nations willing to put troops in harm's way in Afghanistan), and he's swimming upstream in a shockingly left-wing country.

The point I was trying to make is that the Canadian PEOPLE would rather have Obama than Harper and that is sad (selling out your own guy for a person of another country) and how this poll means nothing since Canadaians don't vote in the U.S......I agree with you completely on the work that Harper is actually doing there...
