Dick Morris has just written on precisely this, and I think that it speaks to Rudy’s weakness:
In President Bush’s speech on Wednesday night, he gave graphic evidence of the same kind of increased tunneling of his vision, seeming to focus on concerns more typical of a Mayor of Baghdad, than of the leader of the free world. Only Iraq — only a city in Iraq – seemed to exist.
I think that the advantages that I mentioned still stand. However, that echoes Rudy’s problem.
