Congressman Jim Nussle of Iowa, after his unsuccessful bid for Iowa's governorship, surprised many of his conservative cohorts by signing up with Team Rudy.
Congressman Nussle, a pro-life fiscal conservative and one of the architects of the 1994 Republican Revolution, is adamant that Rudy Giuliani is the conservative in the race.
When I asked Congressman Nussle about Rudy's social stances, he said he felt strongly that those issues would not be as serious in the next few years as national security issues. He also said that of all the candidates running in either party, Rudy is the one guy who has truly been tested.
Leadership, he said, was not just the art of leading with the expected, but with the unexpected -- and that description certainly fits the 8 years in office Rudy Giuliani had in New York City.
