Not A Communist: Tom & Maggie
Actually this doesn't look bad on him. Equivalent to finding out that Harper once played drums in a Hendrix cover band (he didn't). Not sure there was any reason for the campaign to even formally address a clip that old unless they figured it worked in their favor. And it does; if Tom secretly dug Thatcher he can't be that bad, some might think. I imagine any real problem will come from the party base. Mulcair has the delicate task of convincing the nation that the NDP's not communist anymore while assuring the faithful that it still is.
