Rudy & Me
National Review readers and other friends should know: I have just signed on as a senior policy adviser to the Rudy Giuliani campaign. I have thought very hard about this coming race, and the mayor seems to me the overwhelmingly best choice. I will be working as hard as I can to help elect him president. I am not a neutral in this race, and you should keep that in mind as you read my work. I explained my reasons for this decision in as statement released today by the Giuliani campaign:
"Mayor Rudy Giuliani has proven himself the most supremely effective public executive of our times. He has shown courage, character, and conviction under the most ferocious pressure.
"He has solved problems that were previously thought hopeless and achieved successes that others dismissed as impossible. He has made government work - and he has shown that he understands government's limits.
"As a conservative, I know Rudy Giuliani shares my values. As a former New York City taxpayer, I have seen that he respects the dollars entrusted to him. And as a father, I trust him to keep my family safe from threat and danger."
