Jen, Rudy Giuliani just did his best to answer your question. He made his bid to be the guy against Hillary Clinton. He said, “When the polls were six or seven out of ten Americans thinking it was a good idea, Hillary Clinton was in favor of the war. Now when the polls are six out of ten are against, Hillary Clinton is against the war.”
Russert interrupts: What does Rudy Giuliani think?
Giuliani: I was for it when six out of ten were for it, I’m for it when six out of ten are against it. I’m for it not because of polls, but because America is in a war, an Islamic terrorist war against us. America has to succeed in Iraq. And the goal in Iraq is an Iraq that’s stable and an ally of the United States. And to be president of the United States you have to be able to read polls but you can’t have them push you around.
