Bad Boy for Prez

Matt Bai’s “America’s Mayor Goes to America“:

Rudy ran as a real S.O.B., the guy who had the steel to restore order and sanity where no one else could or would. Whatever you think of Giuliani personally, it’s hard to argue that he didn’t succeed; crime and the welfare rolls plummeted for the first time in decades, while jobs and neighborhoods came back… He did the dirty work that made their city, at long last, livable and safe, the things their political correctness would never allow them to openly countenance.
