    Helen Clark performed admirably as NZ PM during her terms in office. She has worked tirelessly since leaving politics in UN positions and understands the diplomacy involved in high office.

    The only other candidate from this part of the world is Kevin Rudd, and I will say no more about that muppet, lest I fall foul of the moderators.

    Any support you can give, no matter how little, in conversations within organisations or with people you know with influence would assist Miss Clark in her quest for this important office.

    It's probably the most useless and irrelevant public office in the world, but if she wants it, good luck to her.

    It'll be a race to the bottom between Helen Clark and Merkel for that position.

    U.N. is a toothless tiger anyways...

    I agree.

    But can you imagine having to listen to the self-serving Rudd every day, and he would make sure it was every day, if he got the position.

    His Excellency Sir Kevin Rudd Supreme Ruler Of The World

    It does have a ring to it.

    I'd like to see Kevin in the role. Regardless of it being a titular role, he would add some colour to the otherwise vapid pageant IMO.

    The way that Julie Bishop rapidly shed her mocking of Rudd and Gillard when the Security Council seat did eventuate, makes me think there is some prestige involved. Maybe she has her hat in the ring too?


    If the idea is to deny Kevin a glory, my question is why we would want to stoop to the same level as the politics in this country has over the last few terms? ...surely we can see the wounds from shooting ourselves in the foot because of emotional bias? Kevin pulled his socks up, got over the sooks and now he's being touted for a tiara, .... better than most of us here in the cheap seats?

    Reluctantly GG, as she is of the far Left, but her PM leadership record puts Kevin Rudd's in the shade, by a considerable margin.

    She would be a good candidate.

    I thought you were a real Queenslander, but maybe you are not.

    I have seen at many a "State of Origin" game how Queensland blood runs deep. When the troops are in the trenches, defending a star studded NSW attack on your own try line, the call goes out - "QUEENSLANDER, QUEENSLANDER". Invariably a certain try is extinguished and Queensland goes on to win the battle.

    You are not welcome at Suncorp Stadium.:aus:

    I guess you guys are right. I don't like Rudd.

    I wish him not the plague, but something suitable like bum boils to make him sit up and listen and keep his big mouth shut.

    He is a double crosser and just " not a nice person ".

    I must be getting mellow in my ageing.

    +1......Rudd the multi millionaire democratic socialist where everybody should be equal...Just like the late Labor Premier of NSW who died recently leaving $40,000,000.......A true socialist should not be a millionaire......It is against their Fabian ideology.

    Noco, you need to have a good look at real estate prices in Sydney.

    Neville Wran was a Balmain boy, owned a couple of peasant houses in the inner city of Sydney. Bingo, he became a multi-millionaire.

    Get over your bias, or next you will be saying only "Liberals" will be allowed to own a house.:rolleyes:

    Helen Clark certainly represents Labors values more so than Rudd

    Something a bit irrelevant, but when the right use Fabian, it has a special kick for me:
    a well known (there) french socialist ex prime minister now minister for whatever (been in politics for 40 years) is named Fabius

    just for your next political Quiz:) and to lighten the subject
