I can't say I'm a fan of the headline's emphasizing the fact that Gillard's a woman, I'd hope that isn't a determining factor in peoples votes (though disappointingly it seems it has been for some).

Hey, they never even mentioned she was ginger...

Being that she is a first in her position,using the word "woman" should hardly be considered offensive,because that is what she is.

The party elects the leader doesnt matter female or male, the best person should be elected by the voters for each seat!

The point is that Australians are going to vote in Liberal or Labor, they're not voting for 'man' or 'women'. If Abbott wins (god forbid, but looking very possible), it shouldn't be interpreted as Australians deciding they don't want a female Prime Minister.

I wonder if Kim Campbell is following this election.

Neck and neck, eh? So, did the party make a mistakeby dumping Rudd, or do you think they would have been in even worse shape with him?
