You think it’s about Rudd v Gillard? You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Crean was trying to find a compromise between a party power structure that has lost its relevance and a challenger whose popularity rests on not being part of it. It failed because things have gone past the point where a compromise is possible.

What is more important is that Gillard and Labor, detached as they (like the Coalition) are, can be seen to relate to someone in society.
