Kevin Rudd has sprung a surprise on his own party with a call for the ALP leadership to be determined jointly by caucus and rank-and-file members. And the party looks set to endorse it.
Kevin Rudd has a strong lead over Tony Abbott on personal attributes but it's not enough to overcome the Coalition's polling lead.
Commercial radio shock jocks -- and their listeners -- give their verdict on Labor's leadership change. There's still little for Labor out there in talkback land.
