Rudy Video of the Day
An old video of some crazy dude heckling Rudy and claiming Wal-Mart was responsible for 9/11 is making the rounds. One of Rudy's underappreciated strengths in any Presidential race is the fact that he is probably the best unscripted politician of his generation -- notice how he keeps his cool here. As Mayor he could regularly speak engagingly from an open stage, without a podium or a script, for an hour or more. Not many people could pull that off -- and it makes the likelihood a campaign-ending gaffe once pulled off-script (Kerry's $87 billion remark, Dean's "Yearrggh" or more recently McCain's First Amendment faux-pas) much less likely.
Anyway, here's the video.
