Rudy Giuliani will not be John McCain’s running mate. If that were still in the cards, Giuliani would not have been tapped to deliver the keynote speech at the RNC. This, by the way, is also a sop to the pro-choice Republicans out there, so we can be reasonably sure that McCain’s running made will be pro-life. I feel confident stating, although it is no surprise anymore, that the Republican Reboot I’ve wished for — one in which the party recasts itself as less strident on social issues in favor of other kinds of policies and political foci — will clearly not be taking place this cycle.
