Anthony Albanese might be further down the road to power were he not dragging the weight of the doubts among Labor-oriented voters about whether he is up to the job. For a man leading a party which is well ahead in supposedly reformed opinion polls, a good many people still wonder whether he can win. Some also worry whether Labor deserves to win under his leadership, or whether a victory by him would be worth the effort, given the ruthlessness with which he has dumped treasured Labor shibboleths to get to the finishing post.
