Choosing the Lesser of Two Bads, or the Greater of Two Goods....

Was Giuliani out to lunch this whole time...

Why is he looking at his watch? Could it be he forgot what time it getting into this election race? Or was it that he was waiting for the time for when to drop the McC-bomb on his supporters?

NYTimes Campaign Stop:
In a political universe over-populated by second-guessers, backseat drivers and Monday morning quarterbacks, Rudy Giuliani’s strategic risk to sit out the first several Republican presidential primaries and focus his energy and attention on Florida has provoked an onslaught of debate. By removing himself from the national media coverage surrounding the outcomes in Iowa, New Hampshire and other early states, Mr. Giuliani also removed himself from the consciousness of Florida voters.
I think he implemented the best strategy he could, under the circumstances of the hand that he was dealt in not having a state like Florida come up first in the madness of the primaries.
looking back at the options Mr. Giuliani faced last fall, when Republican primary voters began differentiating between the mayor’s celebrity and his place in a crowded and conservative primary field, it’s hard to see how another course of action would have been wiser for him. Chasing after evangelical voters in Iowa and South Carolina wasn’t going to bring the pro-choice, thrice-married mayor a lot of payoff.
I have no regrets for having briefly supported Rudy. I haven't felt passionate about any of the GOP candidates on the ticket. But I will be sending my California absentee ballot out in the mail today, now that Florida is decided.

Who do you suppose I shall "pull the lever" for........hmmm?

I like Mitt's business experience. Being successful in business is harder than anyone really understands. Unless you also own a business. Especially in Bush's "social conservative" tax the fsck on the small business owner economy... but I digress.

I'll vote for Hillary before casting a vote for McCain. If he wins the nomination it will be a sure sign that the GOP has completely lost touch with conservative principals.

Holy crap, I agree with you on something??? Noooooooooooooooooooooooo!
