News reports today that Prime Minister Kevin Rudd might appoint Peter Costello to serve for Australia in the future if an opportunity comes. The PM also said that there should be a change in approaches to politics when individual talents are concerned. It is nice to see good politics at the federal level in Australia indeed.
This reflects Kevin Rudd's value of talents, a true remarkable character. It also echoes US president Obama's approach to appointing his administration staff using some people from Republicans.
It is a wonderful development in politics. It maximises outputs for given resources of a nation. It is good to governance, to public affairs and national welfare. Both the president and the Prime Minster should be commended for their non-partisan approaches.
