So’s McCain, as a matter of fact. I gotta’ give it to John. Over the summer when it appeared his campaign ran out of money due to anemic fundraising and mismanagement, I was among the many that wrote him off for dead. Those were the heady days of conservative revolt over immigration reform, too.
In a recent Quinnipiac poll [HT Keystone Politics] both he and Giuliani now trail Clinton by only two points in a hypothetical general election match-up. Maybe Hillary’s weaselly non-answer re. driver’s licenses for illegals at that debate had some effect on her numbers. Actually, I thought her pusillanimous yet haughty response at being “bullied” by the big, mean Tim Russert was more embarrassing.
If she thought that was tough, it’s no wonder she’s never accepted an invitation from Limbaugh or Hewitt.
Also, both Ms. Clinton and Rudy are way out ahead in potential primary polling in this one, like always. No time to read the internals today, so if you can, and find something interesting, please let me know.
PS: There’s a new PA blogger in the blogroll: Thousand Points of Right. He’s a retired NYC firefighter and current PA resident who supports the mayor. At least he says he is. The internet’s a wild, woolly place!
If you want an antidote to the conspiratorial venom attacking Giuliani from the current firefighter’s labor union, he’s your man.
