I went over to watch the debate yesterday at Rudy Giuliani’s Iowa headquarters. About 30 minutes before he arrived, here comes Steve Forbes through the door. I was very excited to meet him. Here’s the consummate free trader and flat tax advocate right in front of me. I jokingly told Forbes, "Politics aside, your restaurant reviews are great." He got a kick out of that.
Rudy spoke for about 20 minutes and signed books and signs, etc.. It’s amazing that Iowa is literally the center of the political universe right now. I absolutely feel engaged and a part of it…something I’ve not encountered before. In CA, we knew that no Republican would ever visit since the state was lost. Period. They’re right (or left rather).
