Kevin Rudd Canberra, Mar 16 (ANI): Australian Foreign Minister Kevin Rudd has raised doubtd that he could be re-elected as Prime Minister saying he is ‘not of the view that lightning strikes twice’.

Although a recent poll has shown that most Australians want him back, Rudd doubts he will get the job again.

‘I haven’t studied the history of lightning too much, mate, but I think it’s a pretty rare occurrence,’ The Age quoted Rudd, as saying.

He further said that he is more likely to become Broncos’ captain than to hold his previous post again.

“It’s more likely for me to be captain of the Broncos,” Rudd added.

Last year, Gillard had made a similar claim about her AFL side, the Western Bulldogs, saying: “There’s more chance of me becoming the full-forward for the Dogs than there is any chance of a change in the Labor Party.” (ANI)
