This week is the first one. Rudy Giuliani.

My parents love him. In their minds, He is what saved New York from destruction.

He has a proven record from 9/11 and turning the city around. He is fairly moderate on social issues, conservative on economics.

I have to fault him on two things.
1. His abrasiveness and lack of forgiveness.
2. Lapses in judgemen (firing William Bratton as Police commissioner now L.A. Police Chief, because Giuliani thought he was getting too much credit).
Former Corrections Head and Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik, who is up on felony charges. (Does that mean my book signed by him is now worthless)?:)

One day, I was with my parents and we were walking past City Hall. "It's Fort Giuliani!" I exclaimed with a laugh. My parents turned on me as though they were the same two headed being "SHUT UP! This city would be ruined without him!"

I had no clever comeback, they were too angry.

I don't mind Giuliani.

I would certainly choose him over certain Democrats, no question there.
