Rudd should get what he deserves and for that matter so does Labor. That is the only to hold politicians accountable for their actions and deeds.
We don't know if Abbott will be better or not, but an unknown should be given the benefit of doubt and replace the known bad.
That is the way of how democracy works.
Any sentimentality can be harmful to the national interests.
