Giuliani Blog Tracking the likely Presidential candidacy of Rudy Giuliani

Giuliani "A Great Conservative"

That's the headline from today's Ralph Reed fundraiser -- from Ralph's introduction. At the event, Giuliani came out strongly against gay marriage:

"I believe that marriage should be between a man and a woman, that it should remain that way, it should remain that way inviolate, and everything should be done to make sure that that's the case," Mr. Giuliani said in response to a reporter's question. "But I also believe that you should allow for the protection of legal rights for people who are gay and lesbian."
Effectively, there's no daylight between Rudy and President Bush on this issue.

As we've noted before, Rudy's visit was touted very prominently by the Reed campaign. Just look what happens when you mouse-over the Giuliani invite on

Don't look for Ralph to be jumping on the McCain bandwagon anytime soon. Here's what he said about him in 2000, when he helped George W. Bush win the South Carolina primary:

Ralph Reed, former executive director of the Christian Coalition and a consultant to Republican front-runner George W. Bush's campaign, said pro-life constituents accounted for 40 percent to 45 percent of the vote in South Carolina's Republican primary in 1996.

"It's going to have a huge impact," Mr. Reed said. "If you're losing that constituency three-, four-or five-to-one, it's very difficult to win that primary."...

Mr. Reed said Mr. McCain's "secular-style" campaign and his $506 billion tobacco legislation last year are not good omens for him in early Southern primary states like South Carolina and Georgia.

"When you head South, you're talking about two things — tobacco farmers and evangelicals," Mr. Reed said. "He's not high on the Christmas card list of either group."

Presumably, Reed thinks Rudy can fare better in the South than McCain did in 2000 -- and guys like him are not in the habit of picking losers.
