Rudd at the National Press Club
It felt a bit like old times watching the Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd's recent address to the National Press Club. I don't have the interest or the background to be able give any type of serious review of the talk, but I do know that the former PM looked smart and confident, very much the way he performed in public speaking before his term as PM started to go pear-shaped. I thought he handled the questioning about "faceless men" with care and intelligence. Over the last five months or so there have been a few times when this interesting man has looked rather lost, but he's back now, for sure. If you wish to record this broadcast, I believe ABC 1 will be repeating it at some ungodly hour of the morning coming up.
