Giuliani

Ed Cone:
Newsday says Kerik's flameout hurts Giuliani's chances for the White House. What chances? Could somebody explain to me, real slow and in small words, how an acerbic, pro-choice, pro-gay-rights pol who went through a messy public divorce is going to get the GOP nomination anyway?
My best answer is from a Giuliani critic based on a meeting he had with the most conservative of the base:
By a show of hands, I gave the ladies--and a handful of men who were their guests--four choices: Senator John McCain, former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, Senator Bill Frist, and "other." The results astonished me. . . .

Giuliani swept more than three-quarters of the votes . . .
