a year is a long time in politics... so is five months

Today is the by-election for the Australian federal seat of Werriwa.

Several bloggers have already linked to this news story from just before the last Australian federal election:
Latham predicts Bennelong by-election. 07/10/2004. ABC News Online
Win, lose or draw, Mr Howard's going to have a by-election in Bennelong[Howard's electorate], there'll be no by-election in Werriwa [Latham's electorate]. I'm 43 years of age and raring to go. I'm here for the long-haul service of the Australian people, whereas Mr Howard of course is cutting and running into retirement.

That's Mark Latham before cutting and running from the long haul...

Of course Howard and his Liberal/National Coalition won the election with an increased majority and rare control of both the House of Reps and the Senate. Latham was mauled and retired hurt from the leadership of the Australian Labor Party and from the Parliament. Perhaps these famous last words from October 2004 will make all politicians bite their tongues a little more before sounding off - but I doubt it.

What a difference a day makes... especially election day.
