Count on Rudy’s Character in the Clutch

My opinion piece in today’s addresses Rudy Giuliani’s demonstrated commitment to Israel, including in times when it won him no accolades.

An added bonus: my dear friend Julia Gorin and I, unbeknownst to each other, were at work simultaneously on pieces on this subject, and those pieces are featured today on side by side.

This morning I attended a Giuliani rally in the Little Havana section of Miami. A roomful of at least a hundred beautiful Cuban people, mostly elderly and exiles from Castro’s regime, turned out to show their love for Rudy. An inspiring scene it was – complete with cries of “We love you, Rudy!” as well as women in white cotton dresses and one older lady who spontaneously burst out, “You don’t just love Cubans now! You loved Cuban people when you were mayor of New York City!”

Rudy replied, “You’re right, you are correct. I love you, I admire you, I see something in you that is a quintessential part of America…the love of freedom!”

More on this to come.

    At last, along comes a special New Yorker. A little brash on the outside, maybe even a little rough around the edges, but a gentleman nonetheless. He is passionate, driven, and brave – and you can see in his eyes his principled spirit and beautiful soul. He’ll give his whole self, hold nothing back, and bring out the best in you. Over time you realize he is one of the most brilliant, honest men you’ve ever encountered. He’ll fight for you, and you can count on him through thick and thin. Oh, and he’s funny off the cuff. He’s Rudy! And he’s The One.

    Unlikely to win with his women problems.

    Why don't you be realistic and find another horse? Why not Huckabee?
