Rudy is the only candidate at the repug debate attacking Hillary
He is attacking her on her spending proposals for healthcare, healthcare for children, and retirement, so he doesn't have to defend this administrations policies for billons lost in a lost disaster called Iraq, which he supports

1. Other rationale
1. He doesn't attack his brethren republicans, whose support he may need if he in fact is the nominee.

2. By attacking Hillary, Rudy's acting as though he ALREADY IS the nominee. Pure posturing.

3. Continuing an old feud. Rudy wanted Hillary's Senate seat in 2000 before he was "disabled" by prostate cancer.

4. His attacking Hillary plays well on rightwing radio.

3. Makes him
Edited on Tue Oct-09-07 04:30 PM by vpilot
look like the idiot that he is. I wonder why the moderator doesn't remind him him that they are there to present THEIR position on issues, and to save his criticism of his rivals for a more appropriate forum.

4. I think its easier
then explaining how your are going to continue the war, cut taxes, and balance the budget. The republican debate is like fantasy land.

8. there was a segment on MTP about his campaign against HRC
Tim Russert: "Giuliani is basically using Hillary Clinton as a stalking horse to secure the Republican nomination."

David Brody: "Thats right. And I was in California with Giuliani about a week, week and a half ago, and this is pretty much what he said to fund raisers, on the trail. I mean, he is talking about Hillary Clinton and nobody else. I mean, its invoking the 11th commandment, as for, as Ronald Reagan would say, you know, thou shalt not speak ill of a fellow Republican. Because if you think about what Giuliani has to do here, he has to say, Listen, Im electable against Clinton, and at the same time, hes going to need to pick off support from Fred Thompson supporters, from Mitt Romney supporters, to a certain extent, John McCain supporters as well if hes going to win the nomination. Therefore, no reason to go at these folks in a primary season. He needs to just focus on Clinton alone."


Transcript here (but there's a good interview with Edwards before this part)

15. I see nothing wrong with it. It was not as exploiting as what the bush administration did
This was a very similar point Moore made in his movie Sicko, that rescuers at the WTC could not even get adequate healthcare here
