Great speech but... (pt 2)

I'm not sure it was really necessary to say we were heading for government (however cleverly couched). It just allows for headlines like:

"Clegg tells Lib-Dems: We're on our way to power"

which at a first glance just makes us sound delusional and allows people to just read the headline and not the article by dismissing it as a typical, they're all the same, substance-less leaders speech.

I don't think conference would have minded had it not been said (it didn't look like they were expecting it!).
