Most elections remind me of a fella walking into an antique store and asking what's new. NDP leader Adrian Dix, like Carole James before him, never had the spark or charisma to light a candle.
Mike Farnsworth has the motor skills to fire on all cylinders, but does he have the mileage for the long haul?
I suggest the NDP go to the Red Cross and seek new blood, as the unknown has a better chance of fooling the public - at least for a time.
Just think of American charismatic failure Sarah Palin and Canada's Justin Trudeau, who is popular thus far because he shares the surname of his father, a former prime minister whose greatest claim to fame was the one-finger salute.
I believe no matter what, the NDP will make things just a little more tasty and crispy for Premier Christy Clark, B.C.'s answer to Sarah Palin.
