Losers more clear than winners
Martin loses his government and abdicates his leadership. The night's biggest loser.
Duceppe loses both popular vote and seats. Sucks to be Bloc.
Harper wins, but not as big as he hoped. A mixed result. The big question is whether this will be a Joe Clark minority or a John Diefenbaker minority. My bet is on the latter.
Layton wins too, but at what cost? Ten more seats, but he brought down a Liberal government and replaced it with a Conservative one. How that will play with his NDP base remains yet to be seen.
The biggest loser is clear. The biggest winner remains uncertain. This isn't the finish line, it's the starting gun. Pitter patter, les boys.
