Kevin Rudd is unlikely to be upset if Barack Obama postpones for a second time a planned trip to Australia as an ABC report suggested this morning. Sure the wonderful photo opportunities will have to be foregone but not having to play host to the US President will leave the Prime Minister free to concentrate on getting things ready for an early election. Apart from all parties pretending to deal with an influx of boat people, foreign affairs will have no role in determining who is running Australia by the end of the year. Hob-nobbing with Obama would bring little benefit to a campaign where leadership will play no significant role.
