    To Do A 'Ruddy' - To be at the top of your game and the toast of the town, then, in a blink of an eye fall from grace to the bottomless pits of despair. When all is lost and your future is doomed, you miraculously recover and are restored to your former position out of no where - once again, at the top of your game. Kevin Rudd 'Ruddy', Former Australian Prime Minister, Labor Back Bench, Australian Prime Minister. 2007-Present. Having won leadership and the election in 2007, Ruddy was removed from power overnight in a classic 'knifed in the back' by the Deputy Prime Minister, Julia Gillard in 2010. After 3 long years sitting on the back bench, he miraculously is voted back to the position of Prime Minister out of no where to lead the Australian Labor party to the next federal election.
