Joe Biden's election success is an historic change the world needed.

In 1993, desperately struggling to hang on to office, Paul Keating insisted 'when you change the government, you change the country'. He was right. Voters don't lightly dispatch governments. Because we've had such a succession of recent PMs (one dispatched by their own party, each of the last four terms) it's sometimes difficult to remember that the last time Australia had a one-term government was when Labor was booted out during the Great Depression back in 1931.
