Bill Kristol on Rudy

Bill contests the validity of the "we’re stuck with Giuliani because he alone can win" thesis. He also doubts that that thesis will actually move primary voters all that much. He adds Obama can beat Hillary, while admitting that he’s a six touchdown underdog.

Take away his alleged "electability" and subject his personal life and politics to scrutiny, and Rudy's candidacy falls like a house of cards. The whole thing is based on a willing suspension of disbelief by large numbers of people.

It's interesting to me that the right appears to be more susceptible to a "cult of personality" then the left.
