Dennis Prager makes the case for Rudy Giuliani.

Anyone who does not understand the nature of the war that liberty is now waging against tyranny should not be president of the United States.

I believe that with all my heart.

And the Democratic candidates until now have shown no such understanding

Yes, that is true. Sadly.

– the term "Islamic terror," invoked by nearly every Republican candidate, was not mentioned once in any of the Democrats' debates. But while this understanding is necessary, it is not sufficient. America needs a strong leader domestically, as well as internationally.

And when it comes to being strong on both domestic and international issues, it seems that no presently viable Republican candidate matches Rudy Giuliani.

I like Rudy, he's not perfect, and I really would be more comfortable if he had a strong stance against abortion. In the plus column though:

Giuliani is for school vouchers, against bilingual education, for reducing taxes further, for reducing government spending. And he has well-thought-out positions on how to achieve these things. He also has the experience of cleaning up the most liberal major city in America.

I respect Dennis Prager, and will consider his opinion. I'm still not sure though.
