Bracks, Doyle, Carr and Beattie 

Which Victorian leader might be Bob Carr on November 30, and which Bob Carr might they be?

Steve Bracks would like to be the 1999 Premier Bob Carr who took the slimmest of majorities to a landslide win after one term. Robert Doyle might just prefer Bob Carr the 1991 Opposition leader, who surprised everyone including himself by taking a seemingly unassailable Premier Nick Greiner to the brink after one term. Greiner survived (though resigned mid-term in favour of John Fahey) courtesy of three Independents.

Or maybe it's Peter Beattie we should be looking at. 

Mr Doyle would love to be Mr Beattie the 1998 version, who narrowly tossed out the one-term Borbridge Coalition government. It's fair to suggest Steve Bracks instead draws inspiration from 2001, when Beattie was re-elected with three quarters of the seats.
