Hurricane Strengthening Giuliani Appeal?
Like Lorie, I have been leaning toward Rudy early on for all the reasons she listed and the current post hurricane climate only strengthens his standing I say:
Thanks to the blame-Bush media, it seems the public now believes that the first and ultimate responder to any kind of disaster, whether natural or man-made, should be the federal government, or more specifically, the President. Giuliani is the only potential 2008 candidate that has shown himself capable of handling a challenge of such historic proportions. Because issues of national security and war and peace in the Middle East will outlive the Bush presidency, the nation will be looking for a leader able to perform in a crisis.
There is the abortion matter that will probably cost Giuliani some support from the right-to-life ranks but even they can’t deny that of everyone in the field thus far, Rudy is head and shoulders above the rest when it comes to proven leadership…………..
Patrick Ruffini has a new straw poll up and it confirms the above, that Rudy is looking very good across all spectrums. It’s closes in the south with Rudy 4% better than Allen, but he is still leading. If you add the Fantasy candidates, Rice crushes everyone………
