--On President Bill Clinton: Shortly before his last-minute endorsement of Bob Dole in the 1996 presidential election, Giuliani told the Post's Jack Newfield that "most of Clinton's policies are very similar to most of mine." Rudy! An Investigative Biography of Rudolph Giuliani, Wayne Barrett.
The association doesn't cut it, eh?

Giuliani is certainly liberal on the social issues and, when appealing to the New York media, he made it a point to emphasize that; and, I'm glad you're bringing this to the forefront. Conservatives and Republicans need to understand where Giuliani stands on issues like gun control and abortion. Here, I'm in agreement with you.
That said, I still stand by my remark about the validity of the comparison to Bill Clinton. I used the 'Marc Rich' example as a leading wedge to the array of issues where I think Clinton and Giuliani fork off in different directions. Here's a question worth thinking about and hopefully raises my point:
Where would we be today if Giuliani was the President from 1993 to 2001?
BTW, the spell checker had issue with my spelling of 'fork off'.
