Why Rudy Will Never Be President II

(At least he better not.) He does things like this:

Rudolph Giuliani's membership on an elite Iraq study panel came to an abrupt end last spring after he failed to show up for a single official meeting of the group, causing the panel's top Republican to give him a stark choice: either attend the meetings or quit, several sources said.

Giuliani left the Iraq Study Group last May after just two months, walking away from a chance to make up for his lack of foreign policy credentials on the top issue in the 2008 race, the Iraq war.

He cited "previous time commitments" in a letter explaining his decision to quit, and a look at his schedule suggests why -- the sessions at times conflicted with Giuliani's lucrative speaking tour that garnered him $11.4 million in 14 months.

Giuliani's the candidate who, more than anyone else, is going to wrap themselves in a bloody flag and scream “9/11” at the top of his lungs. He has no candidacy otherwise.

But, hey, that's okay. This is Giuliani. All he has to do is get on the teevee and look manly and resolute. As for actually doing anything, well, that's up to somebody else.
