Rudy had his chance to take on Hillary for the Senate seat. He could have made an excellent NY Senator.
Way too liberal for the rest of the country.
If Rudy would be so great for the war on terror, make him Secretary of State or Attorney General. I don't want him making domestic policy, or appointing two more David Souters to the Supreme Court.
George Allen or Mike Pence seem to have the strongest conservative credentials, though Pence is losing some traction with his immigration proposals.
Maybe there's a good conservative Republican governor out in the hinterlands who can rescue the GOP before it implodes.
