Giuliani's Judges

Rudy Giuliani's strategy for coping with his liberal record on cultural issues seems to be to agree to appoint very conservative judges to the federal bench. My guess is that the problem here is that, in light of his record (indeed, in light of his record on judicial appointments) is going to have to be much more explicit about his desire to appoint abortion-banning judges than someone with a pro-life record would. Consequently, he might wind up actually creating a bigger problem for himself with pro-choice moderates than a pro-lifer willing to be vague (see, e.g., Bush, George W.) has.
