41. Are you not aware that Guiliani says you ought to pass a written test to own a gun? That don't hunt
in the South. Edwards, Clark, and Webb all believe in a broad reading of the Bill of Rights, which includes the Second Amendment.

Here are a few other positions that WILL NOT SELL to Repubs in the South:

Giuliani is pro-choice and has even supported the right to D&X procedures (also called "partial-birth abortions" by the folks who vote regularly in the Repub primary and who won't be voting for Giuliani).

Giuliani opposed Bush on banning gay marriage and extended all city benefits to same-sex couples (with a crowded field of Repub options, do you REALLY think they are going to choose the ONLY candidate who has extended benefits to same-sex partners?).

Giuliani opposed prayer in school (sweet Jesus, won't they pray for delivery from Rudy's secularism).

Giuliani supports the Senate's immigration bill will a guest worker plan and a path to citizenship (called "amnesty" by the folks who vote regularly in the Repub primary and who won't be voting for Giuliani).

Just in case you skipped the opening line:

Giuliani has proposed that all gun owners ought to have to pass a written test (do you REALLY need a focus group to tell you how this one goes over among the right-wing nutjobs who vote in Repub primaries?).

There is zero-point-zero chance that Giuliani will get the nomination (and that's leaving aside his sexcapades in the governor's mansion and his divorce-by-press-conference and his "accidental" marriage to a cousin etc.) once the base gets wind of Giuliani's record on not being a complete tool on every issue.

If there was an open, non-partisan election, MAYBE - just MAYBE - Giuliani would have a chance. With the primary system in place, it will happen over Karl Rove's dead body (which might be a decent trade-off, but that's another topic).
