Giuliani plays it safe

In a speech yesterday at the Heritage Foundation, Rudy Giuliani stayed away from any controversy, instead choosing to cover issues that would be well received by the audience. The Washington Post has more:

Fresh from the first debate among 2008 Republican presidential hopefuls, where he acknowledged that he respects "a woman's right to make a different choice" on abortion, Giuliani avoided subjects on which he and his audience were likely to disagree intensely.

Instead, he talked at length about the need for tax cuts, control of federal spending and freedom. His remarks on freedom got a lot of applause, as did his pledge about the 42 percent of civilian federal employees set to retire during the next two presidential terms.
