I know the Presidential elections are still two years away but I have a question for everyone. Is there anyone out there, a potential candidate who really excites you and compells you to get involved? I don't see a candidate from either major party who moves me to simply go to the polls let alone become involved in a campaign.
Hillary excites me - I will do whatever I can to see her crushed.
I am a conservative who votes mostly Republican but sometimes Democrat. At this time, I can notthink of a single person I feel strongly in favor of, save possibly Guiliani. If you asked me what is tyhe #1 thing that will galvanize Conservatives, Republicans and at least a chunk of indies, it is Hillary. If the DEms do not run her nad present a moderate candidate, they could win the office. But if the run her, they will lose. Everybody talks about her big war chest, but what they don;t get is that it does not matter. The overwhelming % of those against Hillary will never change their vote.
My cousiin is Guiliani's bodyguard. Rudy would love to run, but .............
my cousin says that he won;t compromise certain beliefs about gay rights and abortion that are at odds with the Republican ticket. Unless he changes, he won;t get the nod.......... my cousin says he will not change. It'll be interesting to watch.
I really wish their was a way that Guiliani could run as an independent and actually have a chance at success. In a time of such polarization he would give all Americans a person to rally behind. I don't see anyone else that would receive as much cross party support as he would. Even if he is not necessarily the most qualified man for the job, it is sometimes important to have a president that everyone can support.

that's what I mean when I said he won't get the nomination. The Republican party has become a mere shell of what it once was.
Rudy wont run. He has way too many skeletons in his closet that he doesnt want out in the public. He is happy with this false public image that was created after 9/11. But the rreality is he did nothing anyone else in that position wouldnt do. As Big Al Sharpton said, Bozo the Clown could have been NYC mayor on 9/11 and have done the same job. Giuliani is all smoke and mirrors. He is a phony with no depth.
