On Monday everyone will be wondering if the Rudd experiment was worth it? It all depends on the number of seats the ALP wins on Saturday night. According to the betting markets the ALP was only going to win 49 seats when Julia Gillard got knifed. So that is the benchmark.
According to some analysis in the AFR, published yesterday, the ALP will win 51 seats tomorrow. That means Rudd was worth two seats in the end.
