Rudy Giuliani?

Rudy is a republican but what confused myself and a lot of people is that he seemed to have liberal views...But I think the main difference between a republican/democrat is Taxes/War & Peace. Republicans will always want tax reductions and democrats will always want tax increases...Republicans dont believe in welfare systems when democrats for it.



Read http://www.issues2000.org/Senate/Rudy_Giuliani.htm



I actually like his position on most of the issues. He wants to turn welfare centers into job creation centers for the homeless. I think that is such a great idea.

Can a pro-abortion-rights, pro-affirmative-action, pro-gay-rights, pro-gun-control, pro-immigration moderate win Republican primaries?



Seems pretty liberal to me, I like him. I would vote for him

He has many liberal views, and many conservative views. He is right in the middle. If he is truly going to run in 08 I'd vote for him.



Too early to decide though..but he would be a great candidate.

I'm not sure who to support for yet in 08 but I don't think our candidate Hillary Clinton has a chance...especially against Guilianni

Guiliani has peoples respect after what he was able to do with New York after 9/11.

I am supportive of Guiliani in his political endeavours; however, here in America when electing politicians we often look at the whole package. Guiliani may have a good political record, but he cheated on his wife and is seen as a shady character to some. I personally would vote for him, but I do believe that the Republican Party will be cautious in being quick to give him the running position in 2008-especially since there are other strong politicians also on the possible canidate list such as John McCain.

Rudi

He is an awesome guy. He lead the state of NY through a difficult time and I respect the hell out of him. He stood up and helped, even going to Ground Zero instead of not helping. He went to help out the fire fighters. He is a brilliant man and with his great personality and his great place and respect in the US he could get the vote just as well...

Guiliani, although I believe he did great things in NYC, will have problems winning a Republican primary. He is to liberal on the social issues. Like McCain he will struggle against the Conservative Republicans who oppose abortion, gay marriage, and gun control.



Although he makes an attractive candidate for the independent, I believe that if chosen, and elected he would have problems with the Congress, because far too many Republicans vote toward the conservative values.

Moderate candidates do not usually win primaries. The most extreme left or right usually wins and then adopts more moderate values if they win the nomination for their party.
