Hawkins on Rudy G.
I get the distinct impression John won't be supporting Guiliani's candidacy
He's got a lot of baggage, certainly, and his views don't fit well with the base of the party. But he is a proven leader who gets results as well. I'd certainly support him in the general election if he becomes the nominee, but he's not my first choice in the primaries. At this point I'm leaning towards George Allen, but he's got a real dogfight in Virginia this year, and he seems gaffe-prone.
