The article presents information on a political trouble that Kevin Rudd, leader of the Australian Labor Party, is facing. Whatever Rudd might have hoped to get from his famed meetings with Brian Burke, former premier, it was not worth the trouble it has now caused him. When the labor caucus voted for a new leader recently, Rudd received only two votes from Western Australia's nine labor members and senators. One of them was Graham Edwards, the Member for Cowan.
