Dan Flynn thinks it's a mistake to give Rudy Giuliani the keynote address spot at the GOP convention:

"Shouldn't a convention keynote address be delivered by someone representing the future of a party? Democrats get this. Ann Richards gave a fiery keynote speech in 1988. Two years later, she was governor of Texas. Barack Obama delivered the keynote in 2004. Four years later....

Rather than elevate fresh talent, Republicans awarded the coveted keynote slot to Rudy Giuliani, a sixtysomething cancer and combover survivor who last held elective office more than six years ago. He balked at taking on Hillary. He bombed in this year's Republican primaries. And now he's the keynote speaker?"
