Some leading religious conservatives are threatening to leave the Republican Party if it nominates pro-choice Rudy Giuliani for president. James Dobson of Focus on the Family, Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council and others are considering supporting a third-party candidate. It is refreshing to see social conservatives show some independence and commitment to issues rather than to a political party. But if Hillary Clinton is the Democratic nominee, would they really vote for a third-party candidate, which likely would hand the presidency to Clinton? Do they think Clinton would be preferable to Giuliani, who says he favors strict-constructionist judges?
