In the article:

With rumours that the Prime Minister, Kevin Rudd, will reshuffle his 
ministry after the budget, Senator Conroy, whose internet filtering 
and national broadband network policies are in disarray, may be vulnerable.

Furthermore, Senator Conroy was one of 39 Labor MPs who voted against 
Rudd in his leadership battle with Kim Beazley.

Ok, assuming he gets the boot, who should get the portfolio? Who is 
in a Parl Sec role and needs to 'prove' him/herself by taking this 
on? Possibles:
Maxine McKew - a perception of a technical background coming from the 
media perhaps?
Greg Combet - possibly because of union background??
Bill Shorten - currently in a 'soft' portfolio; may be up for more meaty role?
Who else?

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
