Rudy Giuliani Watch: Rudy vs. Hillary in 2008?
Peggy Noonan WSJ: New York, New York
But it is significant that in Mrs. Clinton’s case, for the past 30 years, from 1978 through 2007–which is to say throughout most, almost all, of her adulthood–her view of America, and of American life, came through the tinted window of a limousine. (Now the view is, mostly, through the tinted window of an SUV.)
From first lady of Arkansas through first lady of the United States to U.S. senator, her life has been eased and cosseted by staff–by aides, drivers, cooks, Secret Service, etc. Her life has been lived within a motorcade. And so she didn’t have to worry about crime, the cost of things, the culture. Status incubates. Rudy Giuliani was fighting a deterioration she didn’t have to face. That’s a big difference. It’s the difference between the New Yorker in the subway and the Wall Street titan in the town car.
