Rudd shows us he ain't no leader

Kevin Rudd has just announced he is not going to stand for ALP leadership. Not really a surprise when one things about it. Rudd likes to think of himself as a leader but he is clearly not. He follows orders too easily. The NSW Right and Queensland Right both said don't run and he just bowed to them.
Clearly, if Beazley was to run opposed, it would result in at least 25% of the caucus voting against him. This would show that a large section of the Caucus and the ALP party in general are not exactly happy at his return.
Now only Gillard is left to show if she'll stick up her hand. If she does it will will show that she has leadership qualities that Rudd clearly lacks.
