WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

Peter Hartcher's essay is as elegant and erudite as its author.

Bill Bowtell

Hartcher tells us in his essay Bipolar Nation that Howard is playing the 2007 election like a shrewd game of bridge. Labor can put down as many policy aces as it likes between now and polling day, but if Howard wins in the end it will be because he holds all the trump cards.
