The Post this morning has a great takeout on Rudy Giuliani, who’s toe-dipping his way around a presidential bid. I look at Giuliani and wonder how he can clear the ideological litmus tests that are necessary to secure a presidential nomination these days — neither political party much likes folks who don’t match every major party position any more. In fact, I’d think that GOP evangelicals would make it a goal to defeat Giuliani as a sort of affirmation of their status, much like what a big chunk of Democratic activists did to Joe Lieberman back in the Connecticut primaries. Of course, we all saw how well that worked out in the end: Senator Lieberman is still Senator Lieberman. And I suspect that Ex-Mayor Giuliani could be President Giuliani if he could get out of the primaries.
