Giuliani-Rice in '08?

Visit Patrick Ruffini's new straw poll and add your two cents.

That was fun, but Rudy Giuliani is a mistake. I like his leadership, but his pro-abortion stance and his adultery would cause many to stay home on election day.

If you look at the results by state, VA supports our own George Allen, a better choice, I think.

You could be right about Giuliani, CIV. He still has time to change his stance on abortion (which I think is the major stumbling block for him), by at least seriously reconsidering his support of Roe v. Wade. The test would be the primaries, I think. If he can win the Republican nomination, he might have a chance with more so-called centrist voters in the general electorate, especially if national security and effective leadership are important issues for voters.

But I think I remember reading something that suggested there's no real "base" for someone like Giuliani -- that "conservative" Democrats will vote for someone who is fiscally moderate (or liberal) and socially conservative but not for someone who is fiscally conservative but socially liberal.

SD, if DeLay were running for mayor of DC, his indictment might just give him the street cred to get elected. I don't know about President, though. Ususally we like them in office before we indict them.
