The writ is dropped

Stephen Harper has started a long and cynical campaign, and the pundits and analysts are off and running. Who will benefit from the long campaign? Who's in danger? Who's secure? Who has money? Who's going to win the debates?

Substantive discussion on actual policy and platform is a little thin, of course. Election campaigns are all PR and marketing, now. But count on CBC et. al. to give us day-to-day updates of what everyone's doing:

We've got 11 weeks to ditch Harper, folks. Let's show him the door with authority. Many ridings have been redistricted to give more ridings to the now denser suburbs, so make sure you know your riding, make sure you know your candidates.
