Thank God for Florida

Rudi Giuliani is finally out of the race, after failing to win the Florida primary (and any of the other primaries so far). As much as candidates like Mike Gravel, Dennis Kucinich, and Ron Paul have struggled to get their message to the public because of the mainstream media's brazen neglect of them (Kucinich had to file a complaint to have a TV network include him in a debate, the network won), Giuliani had it made - the media loved him, foisting his Manhattan-sized smile into voters' faces well before campaigns formally got underway.

The Kucinich episode illustrated the power of the media, Giuliani's failure shows its limitations.
