OTTAWA — Stephen Harper's Conservatives won a muscular minority mandate Tuesday night as Canadian voters entrusted the prime minister with the levers of government in tough economic times - but not a blank cheque.

The outcome saw the Liberals sink to their lowest level of popular support since the election of 1867 - and surely means a third change of leadership in five years for what was long dubbed Canada's natural governing party.

I think this portends better for the conservative movement here in US than what the polls are showing.

Faith and hope, folks.
