Still Full Of ItDick Morris, that is:
But, ultimately, the challenge remains for Obama and for Hillary to flesh out their uniqueness with issue positions that distinguish them. Neither of these two Democrats, nor Giuliani for that matter, can cruise to the nomination on the strength of gender, race, past heroism, or biography. Their success will hinge on their ability to translate who they are into what they are for. How does being African-American help Obama to address the problems of poverty that plague us? How does Hillary’s gender make her sensitive to the feminization of poverty? And how is Giuliani’s heroism relevant to the policy choices of our times?Giuliani's heroism? Exactly what has Giuliani done to merit the monicker "hero"?
Nice attempt at cheap framing, but no cigar.
Perhaps Morris should have a heart to heart with the firefighter members of the IAFF, men who earn that label on a daily basis, to know what they really think of Rudy Giuliani and what he did to the remains of their 9/11 brethren.
