Hiring advice from Rudy Giuliani? Really?

The former mayor of New York City asks voters to think of the election as a choice between two candidates for a job, but his record on that leaves something to be desired.

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- In his speech to the Republican convention here at the Xcel Center on Wednesday night, Rudy Giuliani offered beleaguered voters still unable to make up their mind a way to make their choice easier.

"Think about it this way," Giuliani said. "You're hiring someone to do a job, an important job, a job that relates to the safety of yourself and your family. Imagine that you have two job applications in your hand."

Now, this is the kind of riddle I like -- one where I think I know the answer already. It's Bernie Kerik, right?
