A Contrast

I'm not a big Giuliani fan, and a lot of people have been talking up McCain as tough on the war, but I found this an interesting contrast. I'd have trouble pulling the lever for McCain. He's not Jimmy Carter, or Huckabee, but I don't think that he'd have any problem with the current State Department, which is one of the many federal agencies that needs to be azed and rebuilt.


A good (and related) point about Giuliani:

Frum argues, in response to a post of mine, that Giuliani is the anti-terrorists' candidate because he has a proven track record of riding herd on the bureaucracies beneath him to accomplish his objectives. This line of argument would be a lot more persuasive if, in the years preceding Sept. 11, Giuliani had managed to get his fire and police departments to be able to communicate with each other in emergencies.
