It's a sad and traumatic day for me and other Ruddites but its nothing compared to what poor KRudd himself is going through. He was damned if he did and damned if he didnt.
2 months, 2 weeks or even 2 days ago, if you told me Rudd would no longer be the PM I would have said you are dreaming!
Rudd is in the middle of making some tough choices but the ideas and plans for the country are for the better of everyone.
In his first term there were so so many successes and achievements. Yes, there were some poorly managed issues but nothing to be ousted and globally humiliated.
He left with resounding words of his committment to the Australian people, support to the new Gillard government and was even present in the last sitting of Parliament today. Shedding a tear but standing tall with his accomplishments, not showing malice or poo pooing those that brought him down, there stood a man who has conviction, passion and good intentions. Our most popular PM ever.
Here's hoping you stay in federal politics and continue to make a difference to those in your electorate.
(I feel like moving Griffith.)
