Thats great to hear, problem is, I don't think Bill has the chops to get elected without the Lib's being in disarray. Just doesn't have the charisma/gravitas.
Might be just me, as nobody commented when I brought up the bovver boy style speaking .. eg: uvver wif or wiv etc. as well as the fluffed zingers, and the plate sized eye thing when he's making a point.
Other than Wong or Pliber, which I wonder if the great majority wouldn't now be a bit gun shy on a female PM given that they associate the debacle that was, with not just Gillard, but the gender, I'm not sure who I would choose, if I was to make the call.
I think I might land with Chris Bowen actually. Good communicator, clear & concise, doesn't seem to fluster easily.
