Last week, Christy Clark told reporters she sits down and thinks about the ten things she could have done differently after every political campaign. But Ms. Clark must not have thought too hard after winning the provincial Liberal leadership because the mistakes she made during that race were repeated during the Vancouver-Point Grey by-election. After all, when Ms. Clark left her job as a talk show host to take over British Columbia's governing party, fellow Liberals criticized her for being all sizzle and no steak - preferring to roll out gimmicky announcements rather than debate her opponents.
Those were some of the criticisms levelled against her by New Democrats during the by-election. And that suggests that even if Ms. Clark does think about the mistakes she's made during past political campaigns, she doesn't seem to learn much from them.
