Do you live in Montreal? If you don't then you can't vote for him.

Bold prediciton (with JT as Liberal leader)

Next election Conservatives win minority government, Liberals taking many seats away from NDP (not necessarily specific seats, just numbers overall). Shaky minority government does not last and Liberals win next election.

I often felt they needed some kind of interim leader for the next election and then JT could come in and lead.

After the hit of the last election they need create some new excitement.

His first problem with becoming Prime Minister is that he'll likely have to quit his double life as Josh Groban.

I'd prefer if the NDP won a minority with just enough Liberal seats to keep the NDP from flying too far left and leave the Cons twiddling their, archaic, corrupt, thumbs.

Well I think Trudeau would be a great choice for the Liberials, I am worried he could split the NDP and Liberial vote and hand the Cons another majority.

This is ballsy on his part. The Liberals are looking a lot like a sinking ship right now, so I'm surprised he isn't waiting to see how they're fairing.

It seems to be givein that he wins the Liberal leadership race. Is it?

Being able to secure the Quebec vote while not pandering to PQ voters is a huge perk. There hasn't been a liberal leader able to do that since Chretien. But can Justin Trudeau?

Maybe Justin wants to enter a leadership run at this young age because he and the Liberals feel that his reign could be the longest in Canadian history. His last name certainly helps. It's like a 'get out of political jail free' card. But he has some work to do, starting with converting as much of the NDP vote as he can. It helps that Jack Layton is no longer around. (RIP.)

What doesn't help is that he is ultra-young and can be made to look like a fool easily. To win the next federal election, his handlers will need to be on their A game. And if/when he wins, we can continue to be ignored by the east. Yay west!

With a user name like yours, shouldn't this be obvious to you?

The only thing that can save the Liberal party is a strong leader right now.

His last name alone will get people's attention, it's up to him to do the rest.

Haha, obviously he means he'll vote Liberal. What, do you really think citizens in just 3 ridings across the country are the only ones who choose the Prime Minister?
