Philip makes some excellent points in his column today about how well Rudy Giuliani is doing at taking on Hillary Clinton these days. One problem: Giuliani already had a chance to take on Hillary, in the Senate race in 2000, and he blew it badly. And his prostate cancer is no excuse: His effort already was imploding then even before his cancer was detected. Moreover, his hemming an dhawing about that race — his overblown self-regard which led him to suck all the air out of the room, in effect, while he pulled a Cuomo trying to decide if he really was going to run — caused lasting damage to the effort to keep Hillary out of the Senate, and thus lasting damage to his state party and his nation. One reason that a lot of smart people are worried about a general election campaign of Rudy vs. Hillary is because they fear that past is prologue. Sure, Rudy looks good fighting Hillary when he is trying to distinguish himself from other GOPers while she is trying to beat back a bunch of Demo lefties. But head to head, does she have his number?
