Should Warne run for PM? 70% say yes

Melbourne:

Australia just can't get enough of Shane Warne as is evident from a recent television poll in which an overwhelming majority wanted the flamboyant spin legend to run for the Prime Minister's post.

Warne, who is doing commentary for the ongoing second Test between Australia and South Africa, was joined by current Prime Minister Kevin Rudd in the box when the viewers were asked to vote: "Should Warne run for prime minister?"

More than 70 per cent said 'yes', but the former leg-spinner said, "I've got absolutely no idea how to do it."

Rudd sought to help Warne. "Mate, it's all in the wrist action," he said.

Warne replied: "OK, well then I might be half a chance if it's all in the wrist."

Faced with Warne's massive approval ratings, Rudd laughed, "I haven't been this low for a long time."
