What are the odds?

The aftermath of the whole Latham tell-all-dummy-spitting-sour-grape-laden diary and pre-diary-release interviews, has got me to thinking:

Who will lead Labor to the next election?

4/6 - Kim Beazley - His daughters are backing him

5/2 - Kevin Rudd - Will he be a "late scratching at the barrier"?

6/1 - Julia Gillard - Latham's backing her

15/1 - Wayne Swan

- Jenny Macklin

33/1 - Bob Carr - Clarke and Dawe are tipping him

50/1 - Lindsay Tanner

66/1 - Stephen Smith

100/1 - Nicola Roxon

500/1 - Peter Garrett

1000/1 - Steve Waugh - Faulkner might have a dabble at the long odds

Betting closes in a couple of years.

Are you taking bets? What odds Tanya Plibersek? I do random vox-pops on taxi drivers and they all think a good looking young woman will do the trick.

Plibersek at 150/1.

She may be big in NSW, but she lacks a national profile.

As for Bob Carr, there's the small matter of him not holding a federal seat. But he's sure to shorten drastically in the betting if any by-elections are called in the next two years.

Personally I like Gillard, but so does Latham, and that will probably work against her.

I like Gillard, too, but unfortunately Labor has a history of knifing its female members. The true believers are not down with the sisterhood, my friend. (Sadly.)
