Most people in the world I would not take on physically. I am a whimp. Intellectually, there are many superior to me. Mentally, I can probably hold my own against most people. One person I would not take on physically, intellectually or mentally is Senator Penny Wong.
No one could refute that it is hard for women in politics. They are scrutinised so much more than men and held to higher standards. Women only really succeed in politics by their brains.
Senator Wong has the lot I reckon. Physical, mental and intellectual. Be afraid boys be very afraid. Upset her, and you will not come out of it looking good.
In spite of me being disappointed in her for towing the party line over many matters, including gay marriage, which I don't care two hoots about personally, but many of my ilk do, I think she is future PM material.
I have no reason to doubt that she is also quite charming. Politicians need the charming ability too. But riled, she can turn like a mangy dog. Is she representative of Adelaide women? Should I be afraid to visit Adelaide? Take a look if you haven't seen it all ready. It is so passe to say so, but go girl.
