Unfortunately Rudy is a big lib. He was, and maybe still is, the principal at a high school in Naperville IL. and I had family that went there. From what I gather, he’s not just a lib, but a raging progressive. It sucks because Rudy really inspired me.
The real Rudy might be, but Sean Astin plays in faith based movies, has been married to the same woman for years and has 3 adorable kids...and he seems pretty conservative.
