Governor Walker’s Ride On the GOP Roulette

While Rudy Giuliani will tell you that local success won’t give you national appeal, George “W” illustrates how deep pockets can buy you a Presidency. Somewhere in the middle of all this is the core of a much needed indictment of presidential politics; Issues vs. Money, Hype vs. Substance.
