Australia Poll Rivals in TV Clash

As the election approaches, Australian Prime Minister, John Howard, and his opponent, Labor leader Kevin Rudd, have faced each other in a TV debate.

Both politicians grew more irritable as the debate went on but neither was able to land a knockout blow. Opinion polls put Mr. Rudd ahead of the long-serving Mr. Howard at present.
