Rudd like Obama says Ambassador
PRIME Minister Kevin Rudd and US President Barack Obama have a "tremendous affinity", a senior US diplomat said. US Ambassador Jeffrey Bleich said the powerful pair had plenty in common. I couldn't agree more! They both talk well and do little. After a year in office support for Mr Obama has fallen as the US grapples with the financial crisis, and some of the President's reforms hit roadblocks. Another roadblock has just been put in place with Martha Coakley conceding defeat to Scott Brown in the Massachusetts Senate seat left vacant by Mary Jo Kopechne's's killer, Ted Kennedy. Scott Brown is on record as saying he will not vote for the health bill in it's current form.
