A friend and mentor, Tim Connolly once explained to me that the American people don't exactly know what a president does, but that they take their campaign as an example of the kind of leadership and judgement that they will bring to the task.
If that's the case, you have to wonder how comfortable Republicans would be with Rudy in possession of nuclear secrets. Just a few days into his charge against the windmill that is the Republican electorate, Rudy's campaign lost its campaign plan. Good start. He's the guy I want to have in control of the launch codes.
