Rudy Giuliani on Hannity & Colmes
Radio and television pundit Sean Hannity did the political world a gracious favor a few weeks ago when, in a genial interview with presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani, he ran down the entire list of issues, getting Giuliani’s one-graf position on each. Read the interview here. To my mind, Giuliani’s responses prove beyond any doubt that he is a viable—a frontrunning, even—candidate for even America’s most devout conservatives.
The only weak point came in Giuliani’s discussion of foreign policy. There was no such discussion. The mayor was only able to sneak in one mention of a foreign leader’s name at the tail end of the interview:
HANNITY: As mayor — and we’ve got to run here — but as mayor of New York, I can’t wait. If you were president, it would be interesting. I don’t think anyone’s seen a press conference until they’ve seen a Mayor Giuliani press conference.An overseas trip or two will patch up rough spots like that. But, writ large, Giuliani is in a good place: Americans, more than in 2004, will want to concentrate on their towns, their homes, and their families in this election.
GIULIANI: You know, I told Tony Blair once it reminds me of the same thing that he would go through every week, when they did the question-and- answer period in the parliament. It’s very, very similar.

When Love Beckoned in 52nd Street
We were at San Francisco’s BIX last evening, enjoying prosecco, cheese, and a bit of music. A full year of inhabitation in Northern California has unraveled to me no decent venue for proper lounging, but…

D Afraid of a Little Competish

How Regents Should Reign
As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
