Everybody loves Jack

Jack Layton came across wonderfully in last night's debate. Journalists and pundits across the nation have been praising his strong performance. There's a rundown of the best quotes on the national NDP site. My favorite: "And as for Jack Layton, I thought he gave a pretty strong performance and he gave Canadians a reason why the NDP should hold a balance of power." – Bob Fife, CTV Newsnet, Friday, December 16, 2005. The quotes page above also mentions my favorite moment from the debate:
  • Jack on the PM: "He's been breaking promises for so long that he doesn't know when he's doing it any more." Jack followed this with a list of a few of the Liberals' broken promises on the environment, child care and international aid.
If you missed the debate, the CBC has the whole two hours in Real Audio format here.
