THE PLANK OCTOBER 1, 2007
To pick up on that interesting New York Times piece Jason linked to, I recently had my own experience illustrating the depth of conservative-elite hostility to Giuliani. A couple of months ago, I was chatting with a mainstream-conservative political writer about whether the GOP could really nominate Giuliani. He told me he thought they could. But, if they did, he said he would consider voting for Hillary, whom he assumed would be the Democratic nominee. Despite his deep suspicion of her, she actually struck him as better on everything from abortion to Iraq and the war on terror. Anyway, for what it's worth...
Update: In fairness, Salon's Michael Scherer was one of the first out of the gate with this story.
