Quote of the Day: Rudy vs. Mitt

National Review's Rich Lowry, writing about last night's GOP debate, sums up the problem many people have with Rudy Guiliani:
Near the end, Romney talked about "the stool" of the Reagan coalition having three legs — national security, free-market economics, and moral issues. He's absolutely right about and it is extremely important to conservatism that that continue to be our coalition. Rudy, immediately afterward, talked about the "two big principles" that unite us, a vigorous national defense and the free market. He basically wants to cut one leg off the stool which is the greatest substantive weakness of his candidacy.
