Who was that man?
It's a bit much to think that American leaders are likely to be unduly impressed by our PM, I mean we are tiny!
So all this stuff in the media about Rudd being the "Deppootee!" is a bit rich, as indeed it was about Howard or any other Australian leader. We do not, will not and cannot stand as a substitute for the US...I say it again we are tiny.
It doesn't mean that we are insignificant, any more than your second cousin twice removed is insignificant. I mean they're not your grandfather or your great Aunt, but they are still family...and live (importantly) a life of their (our) own.
