    I'm hoping Rudy implodes - and here's the reason why.  Rudy represents the American Nationalist wing of the Republican Party.  He is the candidate of choice for those who really believe that we are in WWIII - and Rudy will give us WWIII for sure.  The Christian Fundies have exhausted themselves, even in Kansas.  They are weak and beatable, and I hope that Romney gets the nomination.   But extreme violent nationalism (may I say fascism?) is always popular in times of confusion and despair.  If we are in a major recession, and there's another attack, Rudy could win.

    And that would be a total disaster.

      are down playing the term just  because the current attempt is less violent and more PC than the 3rd Reich. Fascism is any defacto control of a government by private corporations. Hitler was, afterall, democratically elected.
