And if there is any logic in the caucus he will win, because he is right noone else can win the election and even though they(the party) think if they hang on to Gillard they have time to change the polls and the opinion of the voters...well they are wrong, because they haven't gotten over her shafting My mate Kev, 20 months ago so no they won't!..... The Labor caucus will just incite them futher if they chose her twice....And she had 20 months to gain popularity and still hasn't succeeded in the polls and she can make as many excuses as she likes the main reason(and there are many) she will never win the election is the ousting of Rudd...

We all are entitled to our individual opinions with regards to the saga with Labour.He may have the numbers so he believes but I do remember a time after the Labour win over the Liberals when Kevin was running around the globe so much that he earned the name of Rudd747.Assuming that J.Gillard was honest about Kevin in the final days before being ousted from the P.Mship by a majority of the Labour Caucus because they themselves saw him as not being able to lead the Labour team(with his tantrums and his inability to tackle the hard policies)Now some from the same group are saying that he would be the right person to face off T.Abbot.Is it because thay find it hard working for a woman PM.Truth is its not about who faces whom in the G.Elections but rather its more about the policies of Labour against Liberals and Rudd should be working diligently with Gillard to ensure that Labour is strong enough to win the next election.If he was so capable in the first place the 2010 issue would never have happened at all.He is nothing more than a selfish prick who will do anything to get back what he has lost and justifying it by claiming all sorts of assumptions.Og God!for crying out loud..

Well for a start the only people complaining about My mate Kev is the ones that were responsible for ousting him?
He has has people come out and support him from the faction and they have said that they never had a problem?
Do you think the caucas heavies were annoyed because he changed the way they could choose parliament, and therefore felt threatened and retaliated unfairly not accepting their leaders decission or backing him with their loyalty?
The reason most Labor voters really dislike Gillard is because she lies, she claims any convesations she has behind closed doors should stay that way and then she sicks the media on Rudd to find out what he did behind closed doors!
She said she got things done but did she lie to achieve this..Yes! as in the case of the carbon tax! Did she promise not to have one Yes!
You only have the word of those that ousted him that he didn't work diligently in support of Gillard?
Even the strongest person cannot stand against those wanting to bring him down when there is no prior warning and that was the case in the 2010 election?
Look nutter you are outnumbered so feel free to vent we all do but the realism is that Rudd deserved his place as leader in 2007 and didn't deserve the treatment he got at the hands of those whose ambitions or agenda's overuled their loyalty...the polls are clearly stating the people want Rudd to be given his job that is and was rightfully his....
This is as most recognise a party that has showed no loyalty to their leader, no respect to the voter and therefore have absolutely not credibility with the populus....who see them as backstabbers and rightfully so....Bring back my mate Kev....he is our true PM.....
