Does this strike you as odd?

Rudy Giuliani is set to make a speech at Pat Robertson's Regent University.

The Republican presidential hopeful is due to give a speech at the preacher's Regent University in Virginia, marking one of the most explicit appeals to date by Giuliani to fundamentalist Christian voters.

It's a tall order for the thrice-married Giuliani, who will likely try to skirt his liberal views on abortion and other social issues and dwell instead on his tax-cutting, tough-onterror prescriptions for America, aides said.

Before Falwell's unfortunate passing, Giuliani had been cozying up to him; now though it seems Pat Robertson may be the only go-to guy for harboring those valuable votes from the far right. Knowing that Pat has not endorsed anyone thus far, "Even the slightest nod now from Robertson, who declined to be interviewed for this article, could help Giuliani sell himself to conservatives."

Not a chance, Rudy.

Makes perfect sense to me. Like I said, Bush/Rove made this a requirement--that candidates have to go sell their personal faith to "faith" voters.

Why not simply address issues and competence?

Well now that would make too much sense, wouldn't it?
