This is the most gut-wrenching thing I’ve ever watched. For once we saw a politician’s genuine emotion. If only Kevin Rudd had been able to let this true side of him show through when he was P.M. Watching his raw emotion nearly made me shed a tear…! It was nice to see Theresa Rein step in and support him up-close.
Kevin Rudd clearly had a problem with his political machinations in terms of driving through the implementation of major policies, but he is a smart guy and I don’t think he really deserved this dumping. That is to say: perhaps it was necessary for the future success of the Labor Party, but as a person, I don’t think he was given a fair go.
