Why Not Rudy?
With all the talk about Bernard Kerik, it occurred to me this morning that nothing has been said (at least that I've read) about the possibility of Rudy Giuliani being nominated as Sec of Homeland Security. Why is that? After all, it was Rudy that was the "comforting", "on-the-ball" manager in the wake of 9/11, not the guy standing (mostly) silently next to him. And obviously Rudy would have more political skill and be better able to navigate the Washington scene.
So my thought was - has he told GWB that he's gunning for the Prez nomination in 2008? That's the only thing I can think of - otherwise it seems like the perfect job for him. Perhaps he's happy to make money - he recently started an investment bank. But I don't think that's the whole story. I think Rudy really believes it's his job if he wants it. Time will tell.
