Why Conservatives like Giuliani

(...) Another bit of conventional wisdom is that social conservatives are willing to swallow Giuliani because his tough stand on terrorism trumps his moderate social stance. Yes, but what eludes the commentariat is that social conservatives' outlook might just be more nuanced than the stereotypes hold.

Giuliani promises to appoint strict-constructionist jurists to the U.S. Supreme Court. Even more than the tax cuts, the high court appointments of John Roberts and Samuel Alito are the crowning domestic achievements of the George W. Bush presidency. The next president surely will get to make one or more high court nominations, and conservatives would like a GOP president to consolidate Bush's transformation of the court.
