Rudd On Top Down Under

John Howard, Australian Prime Minister for 11 years and strong ally of George Bush, was defeated last night in his re-election bid by Labor's Kevin Rudd. Rudd has promised to sign the Kyoto Protocol and to pull Australia's troops out of Iraq.

Let's hope we here in the US can find the will (and oh lord, the candidate) to ensure our current ruling conservatives will also be hitting the road come November 08.

Goodbye, Mr. Howard!
