Yglesias Backs Rudy

More

Matt is, of course, right that order precedes liberty. If that were Rudy's entire gist, I'd agree. (And Hegel was, in my view, a liberal, properly understood.) But any New Yorker will tell you that Rudy has never been content merely to establish order and let freedom reign. He's never secured a liberty he wouldn't like the power to meddle with further, an underling he hasn't tried to bully, or a rival he hasn't tried to undermine. I'm still open to his candidacy. But my eyes are open this time. I've learned my lesson from 2000.
