IT doesn't matter which way the budget vote goes today. If the Libs win, they get to govern for another 9 months. If they lose, they get to fight another election where they are ahead in Ontario.
Last night CBC suggested that the Libs WANTED to lose this vote. I don't think that's the case, but I also don't think an election right now is the nightmare scenario. If the gov't falls, so does the Gomery inquiry.
For the Libs, that might be the biggest blessing of all.
