Many see this federal election as one of the most significant in many years. Certainly, this time there is much more to differentiate between the combatants' respective visions for our nation.
On paper, each side appears to be dangling the same-sized carrots, with the Coalition making promises costing $62 billion and Labor, $69 billion.
The Coalition has been campaigning hard on a very narrow platform; that is, a combination of the old Furphy that only the conservatives can be trusted to properly manage the economy and that Labor, but especially its leader, Bill Shorten, is all about new taxes that will hit hard-working, ordinary Australians.
In contrast, Labor's front bench has been front and centre; just think of the likes of Penny Wong and Bill Shorten's deputy, Tanya Plibersek. Added to that has been the high-profile support of previous Labor prime ministers in Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard and, tellingly, a reunited Bob Hawke and Paul Keating.
Just a day before he died this week, Hawke, his party's longest-serving prime minister, backed Shorten in an open letter to all Australians. It was a significant step, especially given that after his death ex-Liberal PM and long-time rival John Howard made a glowing assessment of Hawke's achievements, that he was "responsible for a significant number of economic and other reforms".
The Coalition hasn't been able to match Labor's united-team focus and hasn't even tried, especially with the loss of such traditional small "l" Liberals as the progressive moderates Julie Bishop, Kelly O'Dwyer and Christopher Pyne.
Morrison certainly has run a disciplined, effective and impressive campaign, probably more so than Shorten. But he has had no choice given the disastrous disunity and disloyalty within his own ranks, sowed by MPs putting personal ambition over the greater good.
Today, the majority of Australian voters who haven't made the trek to a pre-poll centre will deliver the only verdict that truly matters.
