Playing snakes and ladders 

Google Search: Conservatives Looking through the Google Search at the Conservative convention news of the last three days, it shows a party which avoided most of the snakes and seized the ladders.
They finally, finally, appear to have realized that being pro-choice is not the same as being pro-abortion (except for Elsie Wayne, but why would that be a surprise). They voted down a divisive rule change which would have split the party between Alliance and PC. Though the media didn't report on this, its likely that they also fleshed out many of their other paper-thin policy positions -- I hope at least they changed that insulting "we support farmers, loggers, and fishermen" reference from their election platform last year.
And, of course, they remain purposefully ignorant about gay marriage and the Canadian supreme court and the notwithstanding clause -- this is the snake that they just cannot seem to get past, and it will continue to pull them down.
