While living in Australia for 2 years...I ran across many Ozzies who knew WHO THE US PRESIDENT was...but also...could name almost every person in the U.S. Cabinet!

I'll bet, right now, that there's less than 1% of American's who can tell you WHO THE PRIME MINISTER of Australia is!

Answer: Julia Gillard for the 99%.
PS..."John Howard" was a better PM.

Brush up?

There are many Americans who don't know a thing about their country, its politics and who holds various offices much less who the PM of a foreign land is.

For most Americans, take away their cell phone and they can't function.
