New Australian Prime Minister

Just a bit of news out of Australia…

Conservative Prime Minister (and Bush-buddy) John Howard was defeated Saturday in the Australian elections. He lost to Labor Party leader Kevin Rudd, who ran a campaign promising to sign the Kyoto Protocol on global warming and withdraw Australia’s combat troops from Iraq.

If you’re curious about their political affiliation, check the compass:

John Howard was running on the Liberal party ticket, and Kevin Rudd was with the Labor party (comparable to Republican vs. Democrat in the US elections).

The coming months will tell whether Prime Minister Rudd chooses to fulfill his campaign promises.
