I was referring to the electoral phenomenon of a weak candidate winning due to weaker opposition in general. I believe you were fully aware of that, and just being a smart-ass, and thus should have used an emote.

Ah, so we’re pro-emote now.

Though, arguably the very creation of the NDP in 1962 was a significant shift to the centre from more hard Socialist extremes of the CCF that made them more electable and less demonizable. But all such shifts within actually BEING the NDP, post-1962, have been failures.

True, Social Democracy is the furthest right the NDP can go. IMO Mulcair losing was a blessing in disguise, he's have been the Bob Rae of the federal party had he become PM
