Conservative Liberal

FDR would have been a Republican today.

Let the race begin!

 Fox News reports that former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani started preparations for the Presidential Run in 2008.



The former mayor filed papers to create the Rudy Giuliani Presidential Exploratory Committee, Inc., establishing a New York-based panel that would allow him to raise money to explore a White House run and travel the country.


The four-page filing, obtained by The Associated Press, lists the purpose of the non-profit corporation “to conduct federal ‘testing the waters’ activity under the Federal Election Campaign Act for Rudy Giuliani.”

…………………………………………………………………………….

The Republican field is expected to grow with Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, Sen. Bill Frist of Tennessee, Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and New York Gov. George Pataki expected to join the presidential fray.


Giuliani just might be the war fighting leader we need.


“It doesn’t matter what the media does to ridicule him or misinterpret him or defeat him. They ridiculed Winston Churchill. They belittled Ronald Reagan. But like President Bush, they were optimists. Leaders need to be optimists. Their vision is beyond the present, and it’s set on a future of real peace and security,” Giuliani said.

“Some call it stubbornness. I call it principled leadership.”


Giuliani has an advantage of name recognition over all the other Republicans.  He also might the best candidate to win the general elections because of this advantage and because he is socially liberal, which some would call “Libertarian”.  Some potential candidates, like Mitt Romney of Massachusetts and New York Gov. George Pataki, are not much different from Giuliani.  Romney would probably be pretty good as well, but he does not have the name recognition.  I wish they all would just clear the field.  Romney should just go for VP.  Here I can fill up the whole cabinet:
Mitt Romney for VP;
John Bolton for the State Department;
Someone like former General Tommy Franks for the Defense Department;
and, in the spirit of bipartisanship, Joe Lieberman for the Justice Department.  After all, he used to be a DA.
