Breaking the GOP mould

Two Republican candidates are starting to try to break free from their party's unofficial but common political principles as the race for the presidency in the 2008 election intensifies. Poll leader Rudy Giuliani is still emphasizing his liberal stance on issues like abortion; and Mitt Romney, seen recently kissing up like many of his peers to the religious right, bashes the Bush administration on Iraq.

John McCain appears to represent a conservative faction, not to extreme. He also still seems content with keeping the status quo on issues like Iraq — many voters won't like that. Just as Giuliani is pro-choice on abortion, and believes in gun control and gay rights, McCain has a traditional American center-right viewpoint on such issues, often not describing his true policy and saying political decisions like the aforementioned should be left to the individual states to decide.
