Abbott is many things, but he is no idiot. The guy was a Rhodes Scholar FFS. My problem with him is he is not Prime Ministerial in the slightest. This straight talking, know-where-you-stand stuff is OK for a while, but in the end cannot work for the highest office in the land. He is also prone to slip-ups at crucial times, much like on the 7.30 report recently. Yeah I want to have a beer with him, and by all accounts he is a nice guy, but I don't want him addressing the G20. I want someone who the world will listen to and respect, and not embarrass us. Thought Kevin fell just short, Julia is efficient but a political scragger, and our only truly prime ministerial politician sits on the Liberal back benches.
