Mike Huckabee today on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace

Remember the statements from yesterday.

A suitable explanation from a future President? Huckabee finessed his answer and never did answer nor refute his out of the mainstream statements on homosexuality being an “aberrant, unnatural, and sinful lifestyle.”

The comments about Kimberly Bergalis were factually incorrect as Flap pointed out yesterday.

Mike Huckabee did nothing to relieve the fear that he is simply “UNELECTABLE” in a general election contest.

Is this California Electoral College reform effort dead for this Presidential cycle?

Apparently so.

Now, it will be incumbent upon the GOP Presidential nominee to win California Electoral votes the old fashion way – by receiving the majority of votes.

Mayor Giuliani discusses the Iranian threat with Tim Russert on Meet The Press, Sunday, December 9

Rudy Giulian appeared on Meet the Press this morning, looking Presidential, cementing his foreign policy credentials and surviving intense questions from Tim Russert:

Defusing a steady stream of tough questions with a ready laugh and dose of humility, Rudy Giuliani used his softer side to emerge largely unscathed from his hour-long appearance on “Meet the Press” this morning.

Appearing on the closely watched show for the first time in more than three years, Giuliani was met with a succession of topics that could damage his campaign: his legal and consulting clients, his pre-9/11 security preparations, his resignation from the Iraq Study Group, his ties to Bernard Kerik and his use of security detail to protect his then-mistress, Judith Nathan.

Some of his responses may provide fodder to rival campaigns, but Giuliani did an important thing in keeping his cool and responding to Tim Russert’s aggressive style with a mix of humor and contrition.

Flap was worried that Tim Russert, a former Democrat staffer would unmercifully attack the Mayor about his past mistakes in his personal life. Perhaps an interview from an adversary is what Rudy needed to put these issues aside, take responsibility, apologize and move on. It is noteworthy that Giuliani did not make excuses, assign responsibilities or play any sort of “blame game.”

Everyone in life makes mistakes and it is too easy to push off blame on others. It is the true leader who learns form these mistakes and moves forward.

Stay tuned as the New York tabloids and Oppo research organizations attempt to make Rudy a liar.

The entire Meet the Press interview can be viewed here.

Former New York City Mayor and Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani speaks to supporters at the National Italian/American Sports Hall of Fame in Chicago, Illinois December 7, 2007.

Rudy Giuliani continues to lead in the latest Mason-Dixon Nevada GOP poll:

giulianidecember92007aweb

This is quite a turn for Fred Thompson and Mike Huckabee around from the previous Mason-Dixon poll in October where Rudy lead Thompson by 5 points and Huckabee registered only 2 points.

This is a good poll for the Mayor and shows his strength particularly among Nevada women in the first far western state GOP contest.

Will Nevada who caucuses on January 19, ten days before Rudy’s Firewall in Florida, provide the Mayor’s first early state win? Or will it be Michigan on January 15?

Stay tuned…….
