For charging for charity, I find that mildly surprising that politicians would charge for appearances. For the reason we didn't find the WMDs, I call that a black mark on his record, along with the opposing of the "Sensation" exihibit at the British Museum. And for the poll, that one is impossible to argue against.
If I recall correctly, it was when the "Sensation" exhibit was at the Brooklyn Museum when he oppossed it. In fact he went as far as to threaten the museum with pulling the all of the city's funding if they didn't remove the exhibit entirely. Suffice it to say, in one of the country's biggest, most liberal cities, there was little love for Rudy Guiliani. I can certainly credit him for restoring New York under his time. He made most of the homeless people mysteriously disappear, the subways no longer reek of piss and vomit, and hell, his response to 9/11 was superb. Most New Yorkers remember well what an uptight bastard this guy was though. He has respect, but little love.
As far as a Hillary Presidential nomination goes, until I see that the Democrats are finally learning from their mistakes, I have to say that Hillary is a shoe-in for the nomination. In both 2000 and 2004, the Democrats' strategy was to be more Bush than Bush. In 2000 Bush was the Compassionate Conservative, so Al Gore fought back with his robotic "I too am compassionate and so conservative that I will let Bush take a stance on issues and just say that I have the same stance but even stronger."
In 2004, John Kerry's entire campagin focused on how he had sided with Bush on pretty much every major issue of his first term. He agreed with going into Iraq, staunchly supported all provisions of the Patriot Act, he was against gay marriage. Hell the only major difference in that one was, "Do I vote for the millionaire Yale graduate, or the billionaire Yale graduate."
I haven't seen any serious change in the Democratic party and as such I think they're going to just run another Bush Light and Hillary is one of the few high profile Democrats that has yet to break ranks with the president. The problem with this strategy is, why have a Bush Light when I can just have a Bush. Of course if the Republicans decide to nominate Jeb Bush in 2008, Hillary stands a good chance of winning since too much Bush is sickening after a while and even a Bush Light is a good change. Of course I'd like to see McCain vs Clinton so she would be humiliated, but primary voting Republicans have shown they just don't really like that dirty liberal John McCain.
