2008: Clash of the Moderates?

Instapundit, Althouse, and not a few conservatives are leaning Giuliani.

Which means ’08 will get interesting fast, b/c in terms of the traditional (retarded) left-vs-right definitions, Giuliani is a moderate, with known ability as an executive, and known courage (he took on the mob, and won, when nobody else dared to try).  He’s not real pro-gun, and he’s not real pro-life, but he’s willing to not push the issues.  As opposed to McCain, who is definitely anti-1st Amendment…

We’ve had a near-royalist politics lately, Bush, Clinton, Bush, (Clinton?).  Obama is charismatic, but politically a very traditional liberal:  he’s going to win the folks who judge based on emotional appeal, but if it comes down to hard points, he’s going to have a hard time reaching into the moderates while simultaneously. 

Clinton is whatever’s good for Clinton:  near-communist when that’s what her party wants, a ruthless triangulator otherwise.

So you have a lady who will use or abandon any position as needed, and another guy who’s going to disenchant social conservatives.  That sounds like a “battle of the moderates” once the dust from the primaries settle.
