Hail and Farewell

(Above: Florida Republicans greet Rudy Giuliani.)

Like many vacationing “snowbirds,” Rudolph William Louis Giuliani learned that Floridians were glad to take his money but it wasn’t really love. The former New York mayor will quit the presidential horserace at the Reagan Ranch in California tomorrow and ride shotgun on the John McCain bandwagon.

Cuban-Americans in the Sunshine State all have relatives in Union City, New Jersey and have no affection for those across the Hudson.

Mr. Giuliani did receive 15 percent of the vote, but this can be accounted for in two words: Florida elections.
