Obama Campaign Field Director, Jeremy Bird, who helped mastermind the ground campaign for Obama's re-election, rocked the house today with a rousing speech to the NDP convention in Montreal this weekend, which saw the party give an overwhelming vote of confidence for Thomas Mulcair's leadership and ability to become Canada's next Prime Minister - Canada's first social democratic government.

Bird was an engaging speaker, and exhorted Canada's New Democrats to follow the successful path to election victory that Obama found.

Cute bugger too.
