They are crowding the stage of these hallowed confines

Still watching C-SPAN. Rudy Giuliani is speaking to the Republican Jewish Coalition, and recounts his first thoughts on 9/11, echoing those I've had many times since: I grabbed the arm of [NYC Police Commissioner Bernard Kerik], and I said, Bernie, thank God that George Bush is president of the United States. Amen to that. A President Gore might have been mildly competent or disgracefully ineffectual against terrorism; obviously, it's impossible to know for certain. But I believe there can be no doubt he wouldn't have acted as decisively and rapidly as was required.
