Keneally's not 'ken good enough

I have taken a couple of days to blog on the ascenscion of Kristina Keneally to first female Premier of New South Wales because, well, I'm just not that excited. If she can arrest the government's terminal decline then that's a different story. But the last guy only lasted fifteen months and I just don't see her turning things around, especially when the cries of 'puppet' began from the outset, suggesting that the powerbrokers are behind her victory. And we're well sick of those guys.

And an important qualifier - I don't want the government to win, unless they do so by making genuine change and fixing the manifold stuff-ups. If it's just a default choice or the novelty of a female Premier (see Carmen Lawrence, Joan Kirner, Anna Bligh, Claire Martin) then I think it's time for another Barry.
