Verse of The Day
“Na i te ono o nga marama ka tonoa a Kapariera, te anahera, e te Atua ki tetahi pa o Kariri, ko Nahareta te ingoa, Ki tetahi wahine i taumautia ma tetahi tangata, ko Hohepa te ingoa, no te whare o Rawiri; ko te ingoa o te wahine ko Meri. Na, ko tona haerenga ki roto, ki a ia, ka mea, Tena koe, e te wahine kua manakohia nei; kei a koe te Ariki: ko koe te manaakitia i roto i nga wahine.” (Luke 1:26-28)

Leadership is easy to spot. It is naturally interested in everyone and everything, intelligent but modest about it. Look around a university campus any year and chances are you will see a few national figures of the future.

Note the name Kate Sutton. Four years ago she was president of the Auckland University Students' Association. Now, aged just 27, she is the women's vice-president of the Labour Party with a seat on its New Zealand council.

Her election, with others in the party organisation and its list selections this year, is seen as a rejuvenation of the party as deliberate as the feminist infusion of Labour in the late 1970s.

Sutton ran against an incumbent of Helen Clark's age, "a lovely woman", she says, "who had served the party well. But it was a time in my life when I decided to give it a go. It didn't divide the party but did bring a lot of energy to it".

So here she is in Landco's 28th floor suite, hired for her command of public policy issues, Auckland growth problems, local government and potential public-private partnerships.

She is not going to Parliament this time - she is carrying Labour's banner in wealthy Epsom - but she will when she is ready.
