Skip to comments.(Vanity) If it's between McCain or Giuliani, who will you choose?

I know the 2008 election is a while away and anything could happen, but if things were the same as the polls right now and it was between McCain and Giuliani, who would you choose? I would choose Giuliani because they're both modereate, but Giuliani's more loyal. McCain would appease the democrats and would be painted as crazy.
Neither. Elizabeth Dole '08
I might stay home, the way hillary has been talking lately,she sounds more conservative than these two.
I will instead throw away my vote on a third party candidate.
Who would the Dims run? Or are these guys the Dims?
Neither. Condi in '08 ... heard it here first on FR circa 1998!!
Keyes is looking better and better.
"If it's between McCain or Giuliani, who will you choose?"
Given that choice..............
I'd vote NO!
As a former Army officer... Rudy.
McCain honored himself with his service in Vietnam. Since then, he has not impressed me. Giuliani is no softer on RKBA than McCain, and seems to have the grit required to bitch-slap the Democrats instead of climbing in bed with them.
just about anyone before McCain, but definitely Rudy. I'd support Rudy 150% if he is the candidate, and possibly over others in the primaries (assuming the issues are similar to those we face today). There is no better leader or public servant out there than Rudy, even if I disagree on some key issues. He would need to move to the right somewhat, and select a good conservative VP.
Rudy is a winner and he would beat hillary
ditto Guiliani........McCain would just be too old by then
I'm with ya, Hitlery will cream a RINO.
LOL......Keyes is the one and only Repub that would make me vote for anyone else......he scares me.......
Neither. Sensenbrenner and Tancredo. (I just hope they decide to run)
I'm very glad I'll never have to make that choice.
McCain is an opprotunist and also a crook(Keating 5). That's it. Nothing more, nothing less.
Rudy I respect more and I think would be great as an administrator or "executive director". However, I do not want a gun grabber, pro-abort, and someone who is probably no 4th amendment friend, (and I don't know his tax stance) making judicial decisions on court nominations.
I MAY change my mind on Rudy depending on the opponent. With McCain, there's no chance in hell I'm voting for him.
Once the man opens his mouth to speak, the competition is BLOWN AWAY!!
doubtful.....Rudy would pull alot of moderate votes and some Dem votes as well
McNut? I don't think so.
RUDY I could.
If those were the only two choices.
Giuliani. McCain is a freakin' nut case.
If you think I'm voting for Rudy, guess again, I'm going third party. The GOP would be moronic to run a RINO after this election. If they want to kick sand in our faces they will pay at the ballot box.
I have doubts Rudy would win the primary.
I will NEVER vote for McCain. He's an opportunist. I'd vote for Hill before I'd allow McCain to destroy the Party.
If Rudy made it past the primary, I'd vote for him. He'd be tough on terrorists and he's loyal. He isn't my first choice at this juncture though.
Neither. I could never EVER vote for McCain for anything. I know he's crazy and I believe he is a crook. I could not vote for Rudy because although he's sane (which gives him an edge on McCain), I have some hot button issues (abortion, gun control, gay marriage, etc.) and Rudy and I are opposed on all of them, plus I'm not real comfortable with Guliani's honesty either, especially after all the Kerik stuff that came out. That leaves stay at home or vote 3rd party.
Hannity for President
As far as Guiliani, the 2nd Amendment matters!
The rest of the pet issues are irrelevant unless you can defend yourself from the criminals.
I would have to seriously think about voting independent
I got burned with Arnie, fool me once, shame on you ...
well that is the funny thing......most people are actually more moderate with hot button issues.....now hear me out for a minute.......look at the speakers Bush had at his convention to bolster support...McCain, Rudy, Arnold were headline speakers.......i'm not saying YOU should like him but these guys helped rally many Repubs that are not extreme right.....it also depends on the state of the union. If we are still fighting a war, I rather have a great war pres than suffer on other things......
NEWT and CONDI-that's the ticket.
I'm not extreme right , get it ? I have seen the damage of RINOism first hand.
I get your drift; but even cosidering a bort for the ticket proves that the Stupid Party has well earned its label.
well sometimes you have to chose the less of two evils and I sure as hell wasn't gonna let Gray Davis sit around for another few years......he was totally destroying us
I'm tired of playing the lesser of two evils game. If Rudy or McCain is what's left I'm voting 3rd party because I will have no part in the GOP loss.
I agree with you on Newt, he is a brilliant speaker but the choice here tonight is Mc Cain or Rudy. Rudy wins my vote.
Let's take it one game at a time. Patriots, of course...
not really.......many people here have different Ideas of what a RINO really is......for some if they disagree on one single issue they are RINO's even though they thought them great a week ago......for instance....Bush is a RINO correct?....is non war spending is not conservative and he want illegal alien amnesty.....so is Bush a RINO too...? I would agree with you on Spector, Snowe, Chaffee and Collins but not the others.......
Jeb & Condi....another Bush just to rub the dems faces in it!
that of course is your choice....most Republican Presidents and pundits want us to have a bigger inclusive tent but you of course don't have to go along with it.......I understand
If those two were my only choice, I'd buy a case of Scotch and stay home!
And some people go down with the ship, not me. LOL What was the #! issue with most voters ? Values, if the GOP runs a RINO the fix is in , Hitlery wins.
If Rudy is a good conservative, he will take Hillary's senate seat in '06.
If she can't hold a seat in the senate, she can't run a presidential campaign.
