Dr. Dobson: 'A Lot of Things Happen in a Campaign'

He resisted pressure to back Giuliani, who was to drop out today.
Months ago, the mainstream media announced with confidence the presidential race would come down to Sen. Hillary Clinton and former Mayor Rudy Giuliani. Dr. James Dobson, founder and chairman of Focus on the Family Action, was pressured to support the pro-abortion Giuliani in order to defeat Clinton.
Not so fast, said Dr. Dobson.
"We have seen elections, that they're very dynamic, they're volatile, they change," he told conservative talk-show host Sean Hannity in October. "We're assuming that Hillary is going to win. A lot of things happen in a campaign. All kinds of changes can occur. Candidates can fall on their faces."
Dr. Dobson was right: By the end of the day today, both Giuliani and former Sen. John Edwards were out of the running.
Catholics against Rudy can celebrate a victory now.
Well done, Steve Dillard and crew!
Now, can we change to "STOP HILLARY"?
