“It bordered on science fiction to think that someone as liberal on as many issues as Rudy Giuliani could become the Republican nominee,” said Nelson Warfield, a Republican consultant who has been a longtime critic of the former mayor. “Rudy didn’t even care enough about conservatives to lie to us. The problem wasn’t the calendar; it was the candidate.”
Ed Koch, the 3 term loved mayor of NYC said yesterday, "The Beast is Dead! Florida drove a stake in it's heart.." Koch went on to say that being mayor of New York inspires political ambition. John Lindsay had presidential ambitions. Koch, himself and Fiorello LaGuardia both made failed gubernatorial runs. Robert Wagner was two times,a vice presidential candidate and failed in both attempts. Being mayor of New York is the kiss of death politically...it's a mystery.
Koch wrote a book on Giuliani during Rudys mayorship called, "The Mean Man".
Giuliani's failed campaign strategy is being called one of the biggest flame outs in modern American politics.
I hope this is the end of 9/11 politics. You can only play the fear card for so long
