This shows the extent of his lust for power, that he will break his word so brazenly.
After his first challenge against Gillard he vowed to stop undermining her and that he would not challenge again. He lied.
After he backed off his second challenge, he said he will never ever be a candidate for the leadership again under any circumstances.
It looks like it will be a close vote. The unions are heaving people to vote for Gillard.
If Rudd wins, I expect Labor will get a boost in the polls. But I doubt it will last very long. It may help them lose by a lesser amount, but they will still lose I’d say.
And if Rudd does win, and loses at the general election, will he be kept on as opposition leader or will they roll him straight after the election?
