Julia Gillard, question from an American

I've made some Aussie friends, and as a result, gotten more interested in Aussie politics. Particularly Julia Gillard.

Was she forced out mainly because of sexism and misogyny ? To my American eyes, she seems like a pretty decent human being.

Thanks for tolerating my sincere question.

Florida finally gets REAL fall on November 1st !

Forecast for Orlando in the morning of that day, is 44 F. I'd call that fall.


Be happy for us, northerners, Canadians, Aussies, Brits, etc ! Yea yea, I know 1) fall officially started weeks ago and 2) many in Florida hate cold weather. I like a touch of cold, before we go back to endless summer.
