The Real Sporer: Rudy does the Fair
Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer
And brother did he generate enthusiasm. A large crowd gathered around
Rudy from the moment he arrived at the main Grand Avenue gate. People
shouted out things like "There's Rudy Giuliani" from all angles as
Giuliani walked around the Fairgrounds for several hours. Rudy took
impromptu questions from the crowd at all of his stops. The Giuliani
leadership mystique was on full display in his typically well-reasoned
answers. One thing that differentiates Giuliani from almost every
other politician in America is his willingness to explain to people
why they should agree with him instead of why he agrees with them.
Giuliani has mastered the too rare practice of persuasive argument.
Rudy fielded the usual questions on Iraq and immigration with his
usual very hard lines.
