Jonathan Tobin, executive editor of the Jewish Exponent in Philadelphia, handicaps the presidential candidates in his article The GOP aims to self-destruct
He acknowledges that Hillary Clinton will be he Democratic nominee while Rudi Giuliani will carry the GOP standard.
THOUGH MOST Jews will back the Democrats no matter what and care more about domestic issues than Israel, Giuliani does give the GOP a chance to win over more of the minority of Jews (in key strategic states) whose votes will be influenced by the Middle East.
But the possible triumph of Republican centrism and the hope of victory in 2008 isn’t being greeted with acclamation among the GOP faithful. Though he may be their best – and perhaps, only – chance to win next year, the truth is that some Republicans would rather see Hillary triumph than allow a pro-choice Republican to sit in the White House.
To my mind if the GOP would adopt a politically incorrect posture and campaign on ending the Islamic threat not only to our lives but to our culture, it would be a winning ticket.
