Now it's Combet vs Shorten

Julia Gillard must eventually fall on the sword that removed her predecessor. Of the two serious contenders to replace her, Bill Shorten has the best advantage.

Simon Crean is a selfless politician, he knows the game and has been a warrior for Labor for decades. His call for a leadership spill was a call of desperation, for no one loves the ALP more than he. I strongly doubt Crean particularly likes Kevin Rudd or dislikes Julia Gillard. He saw his party and government falling apart and tried to bring matters to a head and avert a landslide loss at the next election. He knows that the leadership must change and he’s right.
