Re: Ausralian Federal Election Soon
As not too many Ozzies have engaged on this topic, I'd like to. From the news we get over here (Asia Pacific, BBC, Fox) it seems that although Rudd can for the most part get his point across clearly and succinctly, he does't do it with any gravitas. I could imagine him back-peddalling with another head-of-state and would wonder if he was getting the best deal for his country.
Howard, on the other hand, has at least some gravitas but, in addtion, that sort of small man complex-like drive that makes you think "I might not like him but I know he'll get the majority of what he's fighting for."
