Two PMs in Washington

I have an op-ed in today’s Herald on ‘the month of the two PMs’ – the visits to Washington by John Howard and Kevin Rudd. Rocco has also done a nice illustration to go with the piece.

One of the interesting things for me about Rudd’s speech to Brookings, where I’m based, is that immediately afterwards he met with Senator Hillary Clinton, so we got to eyeball her on the way through. She certainly has a stately quality to her: all around her there are cars, rope lines, Secret Service guys, snappers and onlookers, but she moves serenely through the middle of it, almost as though her feet do not touch the ground.
