Presidential candidates (letter)
, March 3, 2007
American Republican candidate for president, Rudy Giuliani, says, "I'm in it to win."
If he won the Republican nomination, he would defeat Hillary Clinton for the presidency, because she has made many enemies and he is popular following his work after 9/11.
Also, while mayor of New York, he drastically reduced crime, for example from 2,300 murders per year to 600.
That vote for president would be national, however the vote for his nomination would be among Republicans. His opinions on gay rights, abortion and gun control (not to mention the fact that he up to his third marriage) would not sit well with party members, who are generally conservative.
We haven't heard much from the man I think could and should be president, former Republican Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich, who is presently keeping a low profile.
Highly intelligent and very articulate, this no-spin straight-shooter would take Hillary Clinton to the cleaners, in a live telecast of a presidential debate.Frank Bellet,
