Kevin Rudd on equal marriage

It’s hard to imagine that there are many people left that haven’t seen this clip by now… but isn’t it nice to see two people defending decisions of conscience on an issue? While Rudd got the better of the exchange, I think this is exactly the kind of open discussion that raises the standard of debate.

And – as a sidenote – isn’t the constant distraction of the Twitter stream at the bottom of the picture irritating in a way that’s symbolic of much that is wrong about TV’s obsession with viewer interaction?
