Suddenly, I Don't Hate Australia (As Much)

It was nice to read this lead paragraph this morning:
SYDNEY, Australia (AP) — Conservative Prime Minister John Howard suffered a humiliating defeat Saturday at the hands of the left-leaning opposition, whose leader has promised to immediately sign the Kyoto Protocol on global warming and withdraw Australia's combat troops from Iraq.
Sadly, Rudd is not in favor of marriage equality for everyone. However, he's an improvement over homophobic John Howard and favors laws that give same-sex couples the same rights as heterosexual couples (although, as we know, that tactic has been a failure in NJ).
