How long can/should they stall?

They could stall until right before the next election. Sounds like that's what they are doing (at least one year out from e-day). Smart because:
- If they elect a leader without a seat it won't matter because they'll be in election mode anyway and they can target a seat in the general accordingly
- The new leader will be fresh on people's minds right in the middle of election season
- It will work to maximize a fresh face who will benefit from being elected amidst election fever.

Didn't they book their leadership convention this past weekend?

I have no clue who they could choose to be leader. Kevin Little might be a good choice if they want to differentiate themselves from the Tories and kill the NDP.

They did book it for next year. You're right, Kevin Little would be disasterous for the NDP. I doubt they'd elect him though. If Dave Dingwall runs I wouldn't be surprised to see him win. Him for Don Downe, either a pretty good thing for us.

I'm fairly certain Dave Dingwall has little support in Cape Breton (although I've been known to be wrong). Among other things, he's responsible for a big ol' rock wall in front of UCCB, blocking the view of oncoming highway traffic and making you stick your nose onto the highway to see if anything's coming, and backing up frantically when there is. We call it the Ding Wall.

Er. Not that I know what I'm talking about.

Dave Dingwall took himself out of the running for the Liberal leadership in Nova Scotia. My official prediction is the next Liberal leader will be lawyer Danny Graham who my best friend articled with and says he's a pretty nice guy and he's got a lot of charisma goin' on. Sad thing is, he's a neighbor of mine and if elected leader would likely run in my riding of Halifax Citadel which would complicate things for us here in a seat I was very hopeful for next time around. Other likely candidates: MLA Don Downe, lawyer Dennis James, MLA Michel Samson (little creep from hell) and 33 year old distillery owner Lauchie MacLean. Thrilling bunch indeed.
