Hon PM Kevin Rudd has said sorry

I woke up at 5:30 this morning. One of the first things I remember thinking; Kevin must be getting up this morning saying "let's make some history". I was saying "let's make some oatmeal".

Not the speech, but the applause that followed brought tears to my eyes. I was looking for maybe a few choice wordsmythed lines borrowed from the speech I sent him. Nope. He must have gotten some other suggestions that were better.

Compare for yourself:

Kevin's actual speech ( sure, read it, but I recommend finding a video to get that standing ovation effect at the end.)

Opposition leader Brendan Nelson's follow-up speech didn't have a similar effect for me.
