2012 NDP candidates all look boring and unelectable

CANADA - No offense to the NDP... but their roster of candidates to replace Jack Layton (we will miss you Jack!). The charismatic leader who died in August 2011 has big shoes to fill.

And frankly these 7 candidates just aren't up to snuff.

Niki Ashton is so young it hurts the eyes.

Nathan Cullen looks like an accountant. The only thing he has in common with Jack Layton is being bald.

Paul Dewar looks like Michael Ignatieff (and we know what a flop he was).

Thomas Mulcair is a lawyer with a beard.

Peggy Nash is an environmental activist who reminds me of Hillary Clinton.

Martin Singh is a pharmacist (with an even bigger beard).

Brian Topp has a widows peak and is an executive on multiple committees. He looks uninspiring.

In my mind the only real solution is for the NDP and Liberals to join forces into a single "left of middle" party.

None of these candidates look inspiring or charismatic. It is possible to try and forge ahead with a non charismatic leader (like Stephan Dion, what a mistake that was), but we already know the Conservatives will just rip a non charismatic leader to pieces like they did Dion.

The NDP needs a strong leader. None of this people look to be ready or capable of doing the job. Stephen Harper will just rip them apart.
