I've just got to say how excited I am to see that we have our first female Prime Minister! Like her or not, Julia Gillard has today broken a barrier and made history in Australian politics.
Time will tell what sort of leader she is and whether she successfully leads her party to victory in the next election... I'll be watching on with interest and the same excitement I felt at seeing Barack Obama elected.
I can't believe it's taken this long to happen but thank goodness it has. An historic day! (have I mentioned I'm excited :-)
