A conservative case for Giuliani can be made, and I have been attempting to make it. It is based on the assumption that the Giuliani path is the only path to Republican victory, an assumption that has yet to be disproven by a single poll or any other evidence whatsoever.
Oh, please. If you spin, twist, gloss and lie enough you could make a conservative case for Howard Dean. The vast majority of members in this forum are not buying that argument.
"... the assumption that the Giuliani path is the only path to Republican victory,..."
Winning at any cost is not a widely-held conservative principle.
History shows that assumption to be unrealistic. The Republicans who win the White House are those who appeal to conservative "Reagan Democrats." These voters are not going to support a candidate who holds Giuliani's extremist liberal views on issues like gun control and abortion. Rudy Giuliani has very little chance of winning the general election. He would be the worst candidate that we could run against Hillary or any other Democrat.
