Clyde Sanger's message is sage and on target. If the NDP and Liberal leadership are unwilling to do what is necessary to unseat the Tories before the next election, then that leadership is not only frustrating the will of a majority that the two parties enter some limited coalition, but also condemning themselves to frustration for the price of maintaining their egos.

As an executive coach, I come across such behaviour all the time, and have several times been able to facilitate a learning, and therefore growth in perspective, by my clients that results in agreement where formerly an impasse blocked a joint solution. The approach I take is outlined at:

Testimonials to the psycho-linguistic discipline -- a discipline becoming known as 'Eye-Zen English' -- by which I complete the facilitative process outlined at that link are available at:

I invite Clyde and his readers to visit these links and to consider adding some of the practices outline there to their efforts to gain a sensible coalition among the two major progressive Federal parties.

There are so many twists and turns before 2015: elections in BC and Quebec, to name only two. Still, it would be so heartening to see the NDP and Liberals at least being civil to each other and concentrating on the vital task at hand. It seems as though they don't really recognize the seriousness of the situation, so locked are they in futile pecking at each other -- truly like cocks fighting while the fox is in the hen-house.

I can genuinely see value in the traditions of both parties. They don't have to give them up. All they have to do is cooperate for one election, or maybe two if necessary; get the electoral system fixed, diminish the power of the PMO; then go back to their traditional paths again if they wish.
