A few thought...
::The liberal party needs to be seen to be closer to the center. Abbott is not the man for this.
::Joe Hockeys or Malcolm Turnbull's time will come. There will be a spill when Abbott looses the next election. Or sooner if Abbott doesn't look a bit more moderate.
::The vote was less than convincing 42-41, a shaky start for Abbott.
::Turnbull didn't go down in the ball of fire as predicted. Sure he lost but he will be a thorn in Tony Abbott's side, with that sort of margin.
::Turnbull has learn't a lot from this. He will be wiser if he gets a second spin.
