Short of asking Dick Cheney to do another stint as Vice President, Giuliani would be a good choice if you're looking for a kick-ass-and-take-names kind of VP that would give our enemies pause -- just as Cheney did. A good VP can make a difference in a war situation.
Agreed Guiliani is not a bad choice he has no fear and kicks butt in speeches and debates. He will be vp so he won’t affect social policy which is why he’s not liked here but fiscally Rudy is sound.
But he showed great leadership skills and great personal courage on 9/11. While Bush was essentially in hiding (and maybe rightly so) Giuliani was out on the front lines that day.
And Giuliani knows who the real enemy is. When he was DA, he was fierce in his attacks on the mafia. I would assume he'd do the same against radical islam, both at home and abroad. And it's the “home” part that's been ignored thus far.
So Giuliani is not a top favorite of mine. He has many weaknesses. But I will give credit where credit is due.
Giuliani is very kick-ass-and-take-names, and that is simply an indisputable fact. I would posit that that is a great quality in a Sec’y. of Defense. It could be because I don’t know as much about the Dep’t. of Defense as I should. For now, I think Giuliani would be a fabulous Sec. Def..
