RUDY AND BERNIE….Ah, excellent. Via Steve, I see that Rudy Giuliani is refusing to say whether he’d pardon his pal Bernie Kerik if he becomes president. “He may or may not be charged, he may or may not be convicted,” Giuliani told the New York Daily News. “Who knows what happens?”

I recommend that the rest of the field start asking this question over and over and over and over. Really, you can’t make Rudy tap dance his way around this often enough. Assuming you actually want to win the nomination, that is.
