Giuliani and School Choice

Brendan Miniter at Opinion Journal writes on Rudy Giuliani's appeal thus far to conservatives. School choice may be an issue of common agreement:

"One woman who attended told me she wonders whether electing a president who successfully took on the mob in New York is what it will take to finally break through the entrenched education political culture. Christian conservatives make up the core of the school-choice movement in the state. If they come to the conclusion that Mr. Giuliani is on their side and has the leadership qualities to achieve lasting and meaningful change, he may prove a surprisingly strong contender."

And don't miss Rudy's great comments on the worthlessness of non-binding resolutions:

"In the business world, if two weeks were spent on a nonbinding resolution, it would be considered nonproductive... Presidents can't do nonbinding resolutions. Presidents have to make decisions and move the country forward, and that's the kind of president that I would like to be, a president who makes decisions."

No, I'm not sold on Rudy, but as regular readers can probably tell, I'm paying close attention...

FWIW, Theodore Olson, the stalwart conservative lawyer and former solicitor general for the Bush administration, told the Spectator he will be supporting Rudy Giuliani's presidential bid.

"I admire his character, his capacity for leadership, his instincts, and his principles," Olson said over the phone this afternoon. He said he will help Giuliani raise money as well as offer advice on legal issues and domestic policy matters that involve constitutional questions.
