Rudy was great in 2004, and maybe even better tonight

The crack about 130 "present" votes and not having the option of just being "present" as an executive was devastating. A finer, more cutting exposition of the difference between legislative and executive functions I cannot think of.

This was the best speech ever I've seen Giuliani give. He was funny, gleeful and confident, completely at-ease up on that stage. While I enjoyed his merry delivery of a devastatingly truthful attack on Obambi's woeful lack of executive experience, I think Rudy summed it up best when he forcefully called out in all seriousness: "He's never had to lead people in crisis!" The validity of that statement filled me with even more dread at the thought of Barack Obama anywhere near the White House.
