  1. I’ll provide an alternative to KE’s list, mainly because I lived in Oregon and I don’t want them stuck with McKay (plus the fact that he could not get elected there):

    Anne McLellan - Texas

    Paul Martin- Michigan 9I’m not sure why, but I agree with KE here, although Illinois would be good as well)

    Jean Chretien- New York (It fits, or so it seems)

    Stephen Harper- Arizona (Semi-conservative, solid but not to big)

    Stockwell Day- Idaho (If it’s not Mormon, and really right wing it’s from Idaho)

    Jack Layton- Massachusetts (No change, it fits like a glove)

    Bill Blaikie- Minnesota 9Left-wing legacy state, largely working class, good match)

    Belinda Stronach- California (Ontario is your biggest state, California ours, plus more moderate than NY)

    Peter MacKay- New Hampshire (Moderate state, North East, match made in heaven)

    Joe Clark- Kansas (Came from Alberta, makes sense to have him from a right win state)

  2. Democrats (mainy centrist third way types, as others left for the Green Party):

    Senator Evan Bayh

    Senator Blanche Lincoln

    Governor Bill Richardson

    Senator Ben Nelson (not Bill)

    Ken Salazar or Kathleen Kathleen Sebelius, Mike Easley

    Republicans: All sorts, just not southern

    Senator Rick Santorum

    Governor Bill Owens

    Senator Sam Brownback

    Governor Tim Pawlenty

    Senator John Thune (might be big by than, just kind of as a different candidate to the usual)

    Greens: Liberal Dems, and all of us who are already here

    Governor Howard Dean

    Senator Bernie Sanders

    David Cobb

    Barbara Boxer

    Barak Obama (pleas, can we have him!)

    Southerners who want out:

    Zell Miller

    Johnny Isakson

    Trent Lott

    George Allen

    Richard Shelby

    Names my not be right, but I think it’s a good group

  3. What about regional strength?  Obviously support in their homes provinces/ridings would be strong.  I am doing this on a riding by riding basis.  Any thoughts?

    You could do the more right wing folks stronger in rural areas, with more centrist cantidates stronger in urban areas, and make subuerban riddings swing ones. I don't knw if it's diffrent in Canada, but that's how it works here.
