This is the new regime Julia and Kevin, now Deputy PM and PM.
Like all good Australian lads Kevin loves his Vegemite
John Howard on one of his famous morning walks, he has been the "Member for Benelong"
for the last 33 years but it seems VERY likely that as well as losing the election he may well
have lost his "seat" too.
A skill not to be overlooked is that Kevin speaks fluent Chinese... Impressive.

Hi folks, as I start to write this post it is somewhere between and on Saturday, depends where you are in
The new team leading
Rudd came to power under a slogan KEVIN07, while this is a bit Americanized for our style normally it appears to have been a winner for Kev.
I can’t help thinking how similar his appearance is to Bill Gates, (yes he is a bit of a nerd too) it doesn’t seem to do any harm either that his wife Therese is a millionaire business-woman.
Kevin is a Queensland born and bred boy so has a big following up here, the election resulted in a big swing in favour of Rudd which gives us our first Labor Government for 11 years, our two major political parties are “Liberal-National coalition” and “Labour” which began life as the voice of the trade unions, so at least to begin with , a white collar party and a blue collar party.

As an American, I'm agnostic as to whether I would prefer to live in a country ruled by the Australian Labor Party or Howard's Liberal (actually conservative)-National Coalition government.
