Claim: Rudy To Drop Out, Endorse McCain Tomorrow | Main | Where Will Giuliani Supporters Go Now?
January 29, 2008

FoxNews, AP Call Florida For McCain

50% in, McCain with a 50,000 vote lead, and apparently many of Romney's winning districts counted.

What next?

What a revoltin' development this is.

You know who this benefits?

Oh, damn, I'm too depressed to even do the joke.

Timing is everything. Just as the season was heating up, when people were really making up their minds, Giuliani got hit with that made-up fake scandal about the cops driving around Judith Nathan.

Romney, meanwhile, had been getting it from all sides all the way through, as he was expected to win in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Fred imploded for whatever reason. We don't need to get into that again.

McCain had meanwhile flown under the radar during this critical period, being in the single digits most of the time. By the time McCain surged and Giuliani crumbled, there wasn't a lot time to start vetting McCain seriously.

So here we are. He peaked at precisely the right moment. This was his good luck.

I don't believe in providence and wouldn't ascribe this to providence even if I did. It seems random and unfair to me. I guess we'll see if this is all disastrous or not.


Giuliani giving his valedictory... This isn't a concession speech, this is a withdrawal speech.

It's a nice speech.

It's all in the past tense. "We ran," etc.

He's done.

Allow me my damn-my-guy-is-out moment, especially because it appears that a liberal Republican is going to win anyway. And I have to think Giuliani is preferable to McCain, if we're to have a liberalish Republican candidate.
