Giuliani in town
Rudy Giuliani is scheduled to have a fundraiser in Houston on February 1st at a certain Galleria-area hotel. The Host Committee is Pat Oxford, T. Boone Pickens, and Tom Hicks. That's the national, southwest, and Texas fundraising chairmen for Giuliani, respectively. Those names were all known as Giuliani supporters already.
I continue to be surprised by some of the people supporting him, including the person who sent me the invitation. I never would've guessed that this person would jump on the Giuliani bandwagon.
Because of considerable anecdotal evidence such as this, at times I think about reprising my view that Giuliani has no chance, but I'm not there yet.
For various reasons on each, I'm not sure any of the Republican candidates look like winners right now. The more I think about it, the more I seriously think we should Draft Fred.
Guiliani is, in my opinion, the most charismatic candidate in the entire mix. I believe in him and wouldn't fear for the future if he were the President. I disagree with many of his stances on social issues, but would overlook those to support him. His success in reducing crime in NYC, coupled with his incredible leadership skills in the wake of 9/11, both trump his stance on abortion.
