If you're like me, you were inspired by Rudy Giuliani's handling of 9/11, respectful of his support for the prez, and eventually disgusted as said support turned to blind faith. In 2003 I would have said that Rudy was my favorite Republican, but his bashing of our troops (he pushed all the blame for the looting of the huge Al Qa Qa weapons depot onto our overworked heroes) rubbed me the wrong way.
But as far as public conservatives go, he's certainly not the worst. Why don't some dems suggest giving him a shot at the Supreme Court? He's mostly okay on social issues, and Lord knows he's established his bona fides regarding the law. He'd give the conservatives fits; how can you oppose America's Mayor?
I'm sure there's 184 reasons not to support a Rudy nomination, but I'd rather see him on the bench than on Air Force 1.
