Another knife edge day

I don’t think that the Rudd supporters have the numbers, the reporting in the SMH is painting it as “potentially the most vulnerable day of [Gillard’s] 2½-year leadership.”  Certainly Gillard has put her weight behind the media reforms instead of ditching them, and that means she needs to get something over the line.  It isn’t clear that she’s going to, although there seem to be ups and downs.  I’d pick her to get something and try to claim success, whether she gets away with that will depend on how much the media and the Rudd supporters allow her to.

Another interesting day, I think the real problem is the lack of clear air, and the general day-to-day crisis management that continues to make Gillard and Labor as a whole look weak.
