The question being debated by the panel was “Is the world safer under President Obama?” Audience members were invited to vote via text message. The results were updated and displayed often, and remained remarkably steady through the evening. Near the end, yes and no were repeatedly trading a one-point lead. The audience’s split loyalties were also apparent in which lines drew applause. It seemed the Democrats may have gotten a little less cheering and applause when defending Obama than the Republicans got for their sharpest attacks. But it was close. At least when American politics is concerned, Toronto’s affluent seem split largely down the middle.

But that divergence vanished when Huckabee spoke of a recent trip to Israel. Throughout the evening, Obama’s support for Israel had been a frequent point of contention. Then Huckabee said (I am quoting from memory, so this is approximate), “In 40 years of visiting Israel, I have never seen the people there in such a state of anxiety [over Iran's nuclear program]. And as an American politician, what astonished me was that for the first time, the Israelis I spoke to considered the Canadian prime minister, Stephen Harper, a much better friend and ally to them than the American president.”

The applause was loud and sustained. Many rose to their feet. Huckabee was forced to pause before continuing until the crowd quieted. An audience that was split down the middle on president Obama was throatily enthusiastic about Stephen Harper. In years of closely following Canadian politics, I have never seen a Conservative politician receive such a tremendous outpouring of support in downtown Toronto … and from people who actually live there, to boot.

Here is someone who campaigned for Obama in 2008 trying to figure out the answer to the question that the panel debated at the gala.
