After the ballot, the member for Canberra, Gai Brodtmann, said she supported Mr Rudd. ”I voted for Kevin Rudd to give Labor a fighting chance,” she said. ”I made my decision thinking about the future of Canberra , the future of the Labor Party and the future of the nation.”
Quite heroic to declare her hand after the winner was known.
Quite a contrast compared to the heroically delusional defenses of the PM by Andrew Leigh and Kate Lundy in the last month.
