A high-profile Conservative candidate losing to the Liberals in Calgary?Especially in a riding where they finished third with only 15% of the vote in 2000. Nope, can't see it happening. The only thing Jim Prentice needs to concern himself with is how high his vote count will be.

The Liberals are lucky to be running against Jim Prentice. This opens the doors to the first Liberal victory in Calgary in over 30 years. Prentice wasn't even able to beat an NDP candidate in the provincial election in 1988 (even though he was running as a provincial Tory!!!). He lost the PC leadership race and backed out of the Conservative leadership race. He claims not to be a career politician but it's only because he has a history of losing. Good luck Jim, maybe you'll get one someday.

Easy Conservative win. It showed integrity for Joe to endorse Jim, since Joe's position is to endorse what he thinks is the best candidate in each riding regardless of party (and on that basis has endorsed both Liberals and NDPers in other ridings, though Joe is yet to endorse a Green anywhere).
It also showed integrity for Jim to refuse Joe's endorsement, on the obvious grounds that Jim considers the new party to be the old party and Joe to be unfaithful.
Nonetheless, Joe's endorsement means something, and the votes will shift to Jim rather than going off to the RedToryish federal Greens. Even without 100% of the shift, though, Jim Prentice still wins this riding.

This riding will be won by the Conservative candidate Jim Prentice, who is a little more moderate than some other Conservative candidates in Alberta (and thus a good fit for this riding). The only question is how big the win will be. If Jim gets all of the CA votes from last time plus only 25% of Joe Clark's old vote, then Jim should be in a comfortable position on election night. The Liberals may have to concentrate on Calgary South Centre in order to steal one in Calgary (though I doubt even that will happen).

Jim Prentice running here. He has had tremendous publicity since his run at the PC top job. After Joe the jerk publicily denounced Stephen Harper, Jim stepped up and said he would not accept Joe's support for him. I have heard alot of people tell me they were embarassed to admit they voted for Joe and are happy to vote for Jim.

I think all Conservative leadership candidates will win their ridings. Jim Prentice is no exception, even though he dropped out. I think he is what the Conservatives are looking for in a star candidate. Mr. Prentice would win in most ridings in Canada. On top of that Calgary is the most conservative city in the country, so I can't see anyone else doing anything here.

Though there's some "with friends like these" questioning from the Prentice end, Joe Clark's supporting Prentice. And were the right still disunited, Jim Prentice still might have ended up the only Alberta PCer (or the leader of a peppy handful, a la Charest in Quebec in '97). In fact, he probably *would* be by now, had Stephen Harper not run in the CSW byelection to replace Preston Manning...

Obviously, the Conservative party is extremely popular in Alberta, polling at over 60%. Jim Prentice gained himself a national profile through his run for the PC leadership. He will be able to win this seat quite handily under the Tory banner.

Jim Prentice has been nominated here to run as a Conservative. That's justificaiton enough in my mind.

This is Jim Prentice's riding, and he will win easily. He has a tremendous organization in place and is a potential future leader of the Conservatives. I look forward to Prentice increasing the "sane" quotient in the Conservative caucus.

I think Jim Prentice is a good candidate (possible future leadership candidate?) he'll be able to keep the former alliance vote and a lot of the old PC vote...
