In liberal NYC, or the rest of NY? That's just like MA: we have east of 495 (of which politicians consider the entire state), then the rest of the state west.

I'd imagine Rudy would be well liked as a politician outside of that hellhole.

You're right, Smitty, but he's got, um, a couple little problems :roll: :
1. Rudy's the personification of NYC, so, even if he stood for things that were liked upstate, he'd never be trusted, much less embraced.
2. He's pro-choice.
3. He's a gun-control advocate.
4. He endorsed Mario Cuomo, the devil incarnate upstate.

Not to mention he likes to wear dresses in his down time:



This is just one of several instances so it's not a one time thing.

He has charisma, he made NYC reasonably safe, and he was the right man at the right time. Has he screwed up? Plenty,
immoral? No more than anyone in NYC. Tuff on the wives ? , absolutely , but really, who is not?
For me personally, Rudy highest moment was when he tore up the check from the Saudi Sheik on world news, and basically told the Arabs to F off and Die. Anything before or after that really does not matter. God Bless That Man! He actually had
a set of stones when the rest of the country was shell shocked and twisting hands. Rudy probably will not hold elected
office again, but thank God that he did when he did.

Bottom line: Mike Bloomberg has made everybody inside NYC forget Rudy. And we saw what happens outside NYC during the primaries in 2008.

Rudy made a decision a while ago to forgo politics, he is making waaaay too much money in his consulting firm to leave it.
