And it doesn’t have to be that way. This is a choice which need not be made. Let me repeat, the only people who can give us Rudy vs. Hillary are Republicans. This win-win scenario is one slyly crafted by the media in order to terrify those of us for whom the words “President Clinton” are a recurring nightmare.
Liberals and their media wing long for the days of the sweet sounds of GOP discord, like the fractious Harriet Miers flap or a Pat Buchanan candidacy. So they’ve abandoned former darling John McCain for one who is much closer to their idea of the ideal Republican. For a good indication of once and future candidates who are utterly unloved by the left, consider the attacks on the “racist” George Allen, “Mormon” Mitt Romney or Newt “the Grinch” Gingrich.
No, the media never trash those they do not fear, and their mendacity should be apparent to all who are paying attention. For a group who howls every time President Bush mentions 9/11 — remember the indignation registered when the 2004 GOP convention was held in New York City — the media can’t write enough about the valor of “America’s Mayor.”
Rudy Giuliani surely deserves kudos for his handling of what was arguably the worst day in American history and he certainly displays some admirable conservative qualities, but why must anyone commit now? Doing so at this early date is playing right into the enemy’s hands; divide and conquer.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
