If this is true, as I’ve been speculating for 6.5 years…
Giuliani will have the legitimate opportunity to give us:
- a GOP pres with reasonable POV on abortion/gun control/gay rights (he’s very moderate on these, which i say is good. I for one totally enamored our last truly moderate President (Reagan).
- This “deficit” in morals-based beliefs in law allows for more reasonable Supreme Court appointments, and a true “CHECKS&BALANCES” system, difficult to have when you have an incredibly conservative moral president,who “agrees” with the GOP in congress, but then spends our money into the drainpipe of economic blunders….
Good times – It’ll be an honor to have my name on the ticket which loosed the former-first-lady of her hopeful coil, to one of the last staunch Bastions of American Leadership…
because Colin Powell is just too honest, and too “first black president definitely gets the assaination”

Well-connected public figures report that they have been told recently by Rudolph Giuliani that, as of now, he intends to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008.The former mayor of New York was on top of last month’s national Gallup poll measuring presidential preferences by registered Republicans, with 29 percent. Sen. John McCain’s 24 percent was second, with former House Speaker Newt Gingrich third at 8 percent. National polls all year have shown Giuliani running either first or second to McCain, with the rest of the presidential possibilities far behind.Republican insiders respond to these numbers by saying rank-and-file GOP voters will abandon Giuliani once they realize his position on abortion, gay rights and gun control. Party strategists calculate that if he actually runs, he must change on at least one of these issues.
