    I think you’ve omitted the word “woman”…

    I’m loving Gillard so much (well, I always did, but she was great on ABC last night!)– she’ll be great for Australian women, I am sure. I’m hoping that Rudd will learn from Howard’s blunder, and quit at the top of his game, handing over to Gillard after 2.5 terms.

    And Bennelong will end up with Maxine regardless of whether or she pulls through after the postal vote– even if Howard scrapes through, he’ll quit, and then Maxine will easily win the by-election. I’d rather not wait for a by-election, but I’m confident that we’ll have her soon, regardless. :D

    I’m sad that we are going to lose Kerry Nettle though. :( I hope she runs again next time!

    It’s a great start, it will do for now, but I have loftier ambitions for the country in the long term – Maxine for PM!!

    The Labor women are very inspiring – Gillard, Plibersek, Wong etc etc. I hope plenty of them make it on to the Front Bench and wasn’t it lovely to see Gillard blushing away at all the applause and cheers she received in the Tally Room?

    Favorite moment – Gillard doing a very subtle “yes!” victory hand gesture in the tally room, to which Kerry O’Brien made a subtle “hand across mouth to hide victory smile” gesture.

    As a feminist friend said today – such a contrast to the arrogance of the Libs who felt entitled to it.
