Why Did Rudy Fail?

Paraphrasing KSuv, “It’s the media stupid!”

From Independent Liberal:

In snubbing Iowa and New Hampshire, you must realize that you aren’t simply ignoring voters in those early states. You’re snubbing the national press, which needs to feed off of these early momentum-builders to write their narratives and create their stories. If you don’t compete there, you get no ink. It’s that simple.

Perhaps. Or it might have been the false claims about his security services that were never fully exonerated. Or his three marriages. Or the fact that people just aren’t interested in 9/11 anymore.

Whatever it was, Rudy is done…for now. A VP slot would probably be extremely compelling for him and McCain, so don’t count him out just quite yet…
