Aussie prime minister limps in at third place in eBay auction

Dinner with Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was snapped up for A$6,300 on eBay on Wednesday. But dinner with his deputy Julia Gillard went for A$ 10,100 and even the opposition leader Tony Abbott's offer of dinner fetched A$7,500. Never mind the real world of political backstabbing - Rudd isn't winning any popularity contests in cyberspace either.
