Too soon for this thread? I think not.
As is the way with politics these days, let us forget about the newly 'elected' PM, Ms Gillard, and see who is hovering over her like a buzzard.
Introducing Mr Wayne Swan, Lord help us this guy is only one accident or illness away from becoming PM (by default). YIKES!
Here's some generic info on him, whom it seems has managed to hang on in the face of every leadership change in the ALP since Beazley. But, what else do we know about the man who would be king?
My favourite part is when, upon visiting their old school, Mr Rudd described Swan in the following terms "Wayne was very, very cool; and I was very, very not".
Hooley Dooley, Wayne Swan cool? Eat your heart out, George Clooney!
Apologies to GG for beating him to the punch.
