Go here to watch Rudy's response to questions about two of his Southern regional advisors.

In June, the South Carolina Treasurer and Rudy's state chairman, Thomas Ravenel, was indicted on federal cocaine charges.

Now, Senator David Vitter is busted. Interestingly, Vitter was the first Senate Republican to endorse Rudy. Vitter is also one of the campaign's key ambassadors to social conservatives. In fact, he's serving as Rudy's regional campaign chairman for the South. Vitter reported that he confessed to his wife and repented. I believe that's exemplary. I'm pleased he's now on a better path, and a good distance from Madam Palfrey's "escorts."

The reporter in the above video also brings up Bernard Kerik.

The reporter suggested that people will begin to wonder and judge Rudy by the company he keeps. Giuliani defends himself by saying most of his people were great, but some were "flawed." True, true. Every organization will have people who disappoint.

However, I believe Rudy could have gone a step further to emphasize the need for positive family and institutional values. Denounce marital infidelity! It is bad for families and America.

Mitt is simply a stronger, more credible messenger in this area. He's walked the walk, living a chaste, disciplined life. Rudy has had several prominent marital issues in his past. As a result, I believe Giuliani lacks the necessary clarity and credibility on numerous moral/social issues.

Rudy Giuliani is not man of good character so why are we surprised his supporters, associates and wives are of the same caliber?

hey hey hey,

David Vitter is a hero to the conservative way. He deserves our upmost respect.

If Vitter does not have the respect of his wife he is not going to get it from me.
I was a huge fan of his until now and am currently in neutral on him.
He can regain my respect by how he handles this and so far he is doing a good job.

I did not attack Vitter's conservative credentials. I simply reported on the connection between him and Rudy. I did read of his role in immigration's demise. That is good. He surely was a strong ambassador for conservatism.

However, personal conduct has a way of undermining all of our outward actions. Don't you agree? Keeping one's personal life in harmony is essential. Ask Vitter's wife about that. What has the Southern senator's actions done to his own family? They're all over the news and not really liking it much.

Mitt seems to do that better in this family-harmony area than the major contenders in this race and still others involved with the "escort services" and prostitution rings in D.C.

Well said Nealie. The most basic test of character was identified by Shakespeare, "To thine own self be true..." I think the next best method of identifying character is how faithful one is to his/her spouse.

You identified the real issue here: Credibility. Because of Rudy's total lacking in this area, he sounds really bad making comments about it. It reminds me of Hillary's criticisms of the Libby situation--very awkward to criticize a commuted sentence after Bill's midnight pardons.

Bottom line: I'm uncomfortable w/a president that cannot credibly criticize immoral actions.
