Although the Rudy folks didn’t send this around, at least not yet, this piece in the Weekly Standard gets at the nub of his appeal: he’s all about fighting the bad guys. Social conservatives looking for him to directly repudiate Roe v. Wade will be disappointed again but there is plenty about his views on strict constructionist judges. The ending reads: “You sometimes hear that Giuliani is a cipher, that he has hidden or downplayed his true self in order to appeal to the Republican primary electorate, and the American electorate more generally. Nothing could be further from the truth. His instincts, his thoughts, his goals, his tactics, his audacity–it is all there in the open, like it or not, as it has been from the beginning.”
