Okay, here’s what I don’t get. Rudy had to have known that Kerik had all these problems. Hell, I knew about Kerik and Judith Regan. His sketchiness may not have been a matter of public record, but it was certainly something Rudy knew about. Why on earth would Giuliani back a guy for DHS Director who he knew had to have a high probability of exploding in his face. The failure of the White House to foresee this is baffling enough, but this seems like a multi-front breakdown in political intelligence.
