Rudy for President?  

Sunday, July 09, 2006

Probably not.

On the other hand, it defintiely wouldn't be the end of the world. Quite frankly, it would be infinitely better than a Hitlery presidency (or any Donk, for that matter). Rudy proved himself a selfless leader many times over before 9/11, and then repeated the task in the wake of that tragic day. Rudy's run and subsequent presidency would serve as a wake-up call for many Americans who have forgotten the events of that day, and the perpetrators who brought it upon us.

The downside? Rudy Giuliani holds some very disturbing positions, particularly some involving the Second Amendment. He would definitely have to be kept in check by the people on these issues.

On the whole, a law-and-order type of guy who has already proven himself in a time of major crisis would be a huge asset, particularly given the wartime role he would have to play. He would be a marvelous commander-in-chief with the kind of resolve that would have our current president in awe. If he is on the November ballot, I will vote for him. However, I will advocate for more conservative candidates until that is the case.
