Progressive Rudd ousts Bush pal Howard
TUCSON -- Good news from across the Pacific this weekend as our fellow global citizens in Australia voted in a new Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd.
Rudd campaigned for more action from the capitol in Canberra to improve the environment, health care and education.
The loser was current PM John Howard, a conservative warmonger who refused to sign the Kyoto global warming agreement, and close ally of Bush/Cheney.
The Australian election is a welcome sign of global momentum toward more progressive politics.
Watch for Americans to also vote more for new liberal candidates in 2008, which is good news for progressive Democrats, especially non-incumbents.
