Giuliani Pulls Ahead
Ok, I've only been in Washington for a day, but I have yet to meet a single Republican who thinks Rudi Giuliani will win the Republican nomination. I reckon I am mixing with the wrong kind of Republican. The Daily Telegraph reports today that Giuliani would wallop Hillary Clinton by 53-42 if they were the two contenders. More HERE. To me Giuliani stands out head and shoulders above the contenders. People used to say he wouldn't be able to raise the money. then they said his colourful private life would 'do' for him. Then they said his liberal social views would be unacceptable. What 'they' haven't reckoned with is his clear record of achievement, both in governing New York and then becoming 'America's Mayor' following 9-11. The diehards might not like him but the voters do. The Republican Party needs to stop talking to itself and listening to what the people are saying. And what they're saying is: We want Rudi.
