Ha’aretz’s man in D.C., Shmuel Rosner, has a new feature on his blog in which a panel of experts ranks the likely presidential candidates based on their support for Israel. Rudy Giuliani leads the pack with an 8.75 rating out of a possible 10. Next is Newt Gingrich with an 8.38. Hillary Clinton and John McCain are tied for third with a 7.63.
What do these numbers actually mean? It’s not quite clear, but that shouldn’t get in the way of a good argument.
