Former Prime Minister Rudd and Maybe ‘To Be President’ Hillary Clinton To Dine Tonight
 
6th November 2010
 
Imagine a dinner for two, one person the former Prime
Minister, unceremoniously dumped by his own party, the other possibly
the next President of The United States.
 
Tonight the now Foreign Minister of Australia, Kevin Rudd will dine
with the now United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Who can
guess what banter will be thrown across the table.  Will how to manage
internal party politics be discussed?  How to stay in power for more
than one term? 
 
If they don’t finish the topics tonight rest assured there will be
ample time for further discussion as Kevin Rudd commits to escorting
Clinton for three days of her Australian tour.
 
Few will know the answer as to the conversations at dinner
tonight.  What is known is that questions are emerging from the United
States why the Democrats have lost control of the Congress.  Others are
asking would Hillary Clinton have been a better choice than Barack Obama
for President?
 
Would America be enjoying lower unemployment, a more popular health
care reform program asked Dana Milbank in the Washington Post today. 
More importantly, did Clinton’s support base in the 2008 contest, white
lower income earners dump the Democrats in the latest Midterm elections
switching their votes to the Republicans?
 
With powerful publications putting the question Clinton has
adamantly denied her desire and intention to run for President.  Yet
maybe the topic of conversation over dinner tonight can be how quickly a
political assassination can take place.  That is a topic former Prime
Minister Kevin Rudd is well versed on!
