Labor for Australia

CREDIT:

Australia’s Labor Party has won a crushing victory that looked improbable about a year ago, and will put an end to long-time Conservative rule in the Land Down Under. Interesting from a US perspective is that it seems Labor and their leader Kevin Rudd were able to use the Conservatives’ unwillingness to take action on climate change as a symbol to help advance a broader argument about John Howard being stuck in the past and unable to deal with the realities of the modern world.
