Bush Endorses Clinton

President Bush says he believes that Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee for President:

President Bush, breaking his rule not to talk about presidential politics, says he believes Hillary Rodham Clinton will defeat Barack Obama in the Democratic presidential primaries.

Bush also predicts that Clinton will be defeated in the general election by the Republican nominee. “I believe our candidate can beat her but it’s going to be a tough race,” the president said.

“She’s got a great national presence and this is becoming a national primary,” Bush told [journalist Bill Sammon]. “And therefore the person with the national presence, who has got the ability to raise enough money to sustain an effort in a multiplicity of sites, has got a good chance to be nominated.”

Bush also expressed “surprise” over Rudy Giuliani’s status as the Republican front-runner, given Giuliani’s more liberal positions on social and cultural issues. The Washington Post quotes Bush as saying “Giuliani’s popularity was a sign of how important the terrorism issue is to Republican voters.”

Giuliani’s candidacy continues to intrigue me. I heard quite a few liberal commentators this weekend who were accusing him of being a one-issue candidate who was attempting to parlay his center-stage role on 9/11 into the U.S. Presidency. Meanwhile, folks on the right prove that he’s not a one-issue candidate by taking every opportunity to criticize just about every other position he’s taken. So here’s a candidate that can get the Democrats talking about 9/11 and the Republicans talking about abortion and gay marriage. Go figure…
