Terry Jeffrey makes a pragmatic case for sticking to t.c. (theologically correct) politics:
Bottom line question: If the GOP runs a candidate such as Rudy Giuliani, who mirrors the Democratic candidate's liberal positions on key social issues, and who will not benefit from the presence of a marriage amendment on the ballot, does the GOP increase or decrease its chances of winning Ohio?
Running against a senator who just won a landslide reelection in New York, Giuliani is far more likely to paint Ohio blue than his home state red.
Kate O'Beirne is concerned that a socially inclusive Catholic like Giuliani could expose the extremism of theoconservative politics. She's right. It's one reason I find Giuliani appealing.
