Knowing Nice From Nasty - It's Natural?

  (05 December 07)

A new study in the journal Nature suggests that the assessment of character is an inbuilt human trait. The ABC Science site reports on experiments at Yale University involving babies aged 6-10 months which show them preferring helpful/kind characters to 'mean' ones.

I doubt they polled infants, but perhaps there's a connection here to the fact that former Health Minister and parliamentary head-kicker Tony Abbott, described by the Melbourne Age as "Australia's most prominent Catholic politician", had only 9% of people in favour of him as new leader of the Liberal party.
