I am woman

Yesterday Australia swore in it's first female Prime Minister.  Julia Gillard, welcome to the top job.  

I heard Julia Gillard speak once, long before she was deputy or shadow anything.  She was good.  She'd done her homework, knew her audience, understood our issues.  She stood out from the other politicians.  I liked her.  First impressions tend to stick and I think she'll be good for the job.  Here's hoping that she'll continue to talk politics and the media will continue to listen and we won't see a replay of superficial discussions about her hair-cut, wardrobe and decision not to have children.
