Independent voters have rejected McCain for being pro-war, pro-Bush, and a right-winger. When the polls show that 70% of independents don't approve of Bush's performance, it indicates the independent voter has moved to the left. What could famed right-winger Giuliani offer to them that McCain can't?

The better question might be, what is Giuliani independent of?
