"Harper Said to Have 'Negative Charisma' "

Canadian Election Shows Why Ideas Matter; Flash Doesn't

The Canadian national election is January 23rd. Conservative Stephen Harper is leading in the polls. A story by Mark Steyn explains why.
[H]e's a guy called Stephen Harper and he's widely agreed by all the experts to have "negative charisma". ... Mr Harper is unexciting even by Canadian standards! He's unflashy, unflamboyant, unshowy, unspectacular, unmodish, uncool - except in the sense that the Yukon in January is cool. He is, in other words, the anti-Cameron. And he's on course to win.
