Rudd riding the rainbow flag?

Kevin Rudd has discovered a new moral crusade - same sex marriage. While polls suggest the public increasingly support marriage equality as an issue, making it an election one may backfire.

Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s support of same-sex marriage was carefully engineered to shore up undecided votes in marginal seats, but in reality it exposes his social legacy to severe criticism, while potentially derailing a movement to which he is a very late convert.

Rightfully, the economy, or rather, the management of the economy as it transitions to the next phase of the resources boom, has been installed as the key election issue.
