As I have suggested here on the Grenz before (too lazy to look up the links), Rudy's path to victory is assuring cultural conservatives that he will only appoint "strict constructionists" to the judiciary. The courts is the battleground for the "culture war," and religious conservatives know it. They could tolerate Rudy (especially over the apparent alternative) if he pledges to appoint judges that will be foot-soldiers in their battle. He is doing it. And I think it will pay off, especially with Pat Robertson now on board.
