On 24 November 2007, the Australian Body Politic had a Heart/Brain transplant. So far, it seems the patient is making a good recovery, but we shall monitor progress. As of 31 December 2007, the patient has been moved out of "Intensive Care".
There was a period of uncertainty, under Kevin Rudd, and then Julia Gillard. On 14 September 2010 Julia Gillard was sworn in as Prime Minister, by the Governor General.

Check out the new Rudd candidacy
My colleague and friend Brigid Walsh has written about the latest political candidate to emerge from the Rudd clan, from Queensland. Greg Rudd, brother of Kevin (do you remember the one from Queensland, who was "here to help"?)
Brigid is well qualified to write about this, as a former political candidate herself (a long time ago), and she knows many if not all of the main "characters" in Labor politics and Union politics in Queensland.
I suggest you spend a few minutes checking out the background to Greg Rudd's bid for public office on Brigid's Blog.
