Id rather someone who actually understands politics--so YES, I would prefer Gillard.
I would like someone who not only understands politics BUT also can actually keep a promise such as NO carbon tax she pledged also i would like some one who can actually count NOT like mr wayne swan her treasurer who cant bloody count with economic figures.
Well, that rules out Hanson.
Hanson was a City of Ipswich councillor in the mid-1990s. Following her disendorsement as the Liberal Party candidate for the federal seat of Oxley for the March 1996 election, she was elected as the independent member in that election. Her profile increased dramatically later that year when she gave her maiden parliamentary speech in which she criticised immigration and multiculturalism, government assistance to Aboriginals and political correctness, and called for a return to high-tariff protectionism.

Make fun of her all you like, but Pauline Hansen is clearly better at gauging how the average Australian feels about what is happening to our beautiful country than most of the posters here. Every day in the media there is another round of race arguments which is rapidly and very clearing becoming white Australia vs every other race in the country. Is it any wonder your average Aussie is getting royally pissed at the finger pointing, political correct bull we are getting rammed up our noses. I am not racist but every day I am made to feel it. And I for one can't abide just adding more of the same brand of pandering politicians to the mob in Canberra to continue this country on the same downward spiral. Pauline for one can see where we are headed. Wake up.

Starred you both...
I don't understand how so many people would prefer to have a Politician in charge that cannot keep her own word.
Gillard is the worst PM in Australia's history period.
I know we don't have a lot of choices... But I think I would at least give another the opportunity than to keep in the same trash we have now.
That being said... If I had a third option, I would gladly take it.
