Will Giuliani be held to account tonight on social issues? He’s trying get right with the Right, but he’s behind McCain in the new polls in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina - the only polls that count. As conservatives learn more about him, he will fade. So the maneuvers on social issues don’t satisfy them and will damage his sense of strength with the broader electorate.
In 2004, Giuliani said he favored civil unions for gay couples. Now he’s against them, artfully explaining that marriage is between one man and one woman - that’s from someone who has been married three times, including to his cousin. And he said he didn’t know it.
