A Non-Monolingual Prime Minister

This isn't the place for a discussion of the consequences of the Australian election, which resulted in the defeat of the right-wing Liberal Party, but it is nice to see that Kevin Rudd, the leader of the victorious Labor Party, who will soon be Prime Minister, speaks fluent Mandarin. You can hear him greet Chinese President Hu Jintao here. If only he spoke an aboriginal language, he'd be perfect. :)
