I think Rudy might be shaping up to be our best hope for avoiding Hillary ’08. I’ll admit, I don’t trust Rudy on the gun issue, but I’ll say one thing for him; he said he wouldn’t sign a new assault weapons ban. That’s more than I can say for Bush, who I don’t think has honestly done much for us, other than signing the PLCAA.
Other than on guns, I honestly don’t have any problems with Rudy on too many other issues. He’s always been a little strange and quirky, but considering my other choices are Mitt the Shit, and John “Screw The First Amendment” McCain, so far, I’m starting to warm to the idea of Rudy.
I know there are other Republican candidates out there, but I’m looking for someone who can defeat Hillary Clinton. I don’t think I have to explain to anyone how much of a disaster a Clinton presidency would be for us.
Of course, if the Democrats run Bill Richardson, that could alter the whole equation. But if you want my take, Hillary has already been anointed. Obama is just trying to get some exposure for his real run in 2012 if Hillary doesn’t win.
