No knockout

As much as we would all like to see Mr. Ignatieff reducing Mr. Harper to a pile of goo during these debates it is not going to happen.  Neither will it happen in reverse.  There will be no knockout blow during either debate.  There are two reasons.  One, each of the participants will be too well briefed and prepared.  Two, the debate format is not conducive to knockout blows.

So, with this in mind the mindset of Mr. Ignatieff going is should be to focus on what he can control, namely delivering his message with passion and resolve.  Being a former TV journalist he should have no problems in front of the cameras.  If he just falls back on that experience he should be fine.

well, Ignatieff did manage to keep a strong, central message focusing on trust and democracy. Drummed that home, over and over. Mentioning Canadians as part of the democracy was very good.
