Rudy really looked at this as running against one of his good friends, which makes the whole campaign dynamic very interesting. All of the complimentary things he says about John McCain at the debate before he takes a little swipe at him are all true. He is not up there trying to butter him up before he lands a punch—he really means all those very nice things he says about him. RICK BERKE: As you suggested, there was a lack of clarity in his own mind, it seems, about whether he would run or whether he wanted to be president.
Other candidates who might have felt the same way avoided the question, but Governor Thompson did not. Two of his close staff members and aides are gay, so it was ironic that he sort of missed handling this question. That didn’t help because he got a lot of bad publicity, but that probably wouldn’t have hurt him in the caucuses. It was the follow-up that did. • FRED THOMPSON • BILL LACY: I was a recovering political operative until last July. I fell off the wagon when I got a call late in the month from Fred.
When Rudy saw that was going to happen, he thought that probably would be the opportunity we had. We all agreed that the traditional calendar—where you go to Iowa, you wait a couple weeks and New Hampshire happens, there is a very slow burn at the beginning, and then the primary calendar is much more expanded—was probably not a calendar that Rudy could ever win in. But, in a more compressed calendar, there was at least a shot and with Florida moving forward, that was very helpful. The candidates running posed their own challenge.
