Firing Line with William F. Buckley “Is New York City Out from Under?”

Firing Line Videos, Hoover Institution, taped on January 13, 1999, uploaded to YouTube on March 5, 2015.

Guest: Rudy Giuliani


Mr. Buckley reminds us, that Theodore White once wrote that New York City was ungovernable. Prior mayors proved White correct. Then Ed Koch took over, followed by Rudy Giuliani, and things were looking up. Mayor Giuliani begins with a provocative sidelight on why Republicans were doing well as mayors of major cities, then on to marijuana, President Clinton, and much else.
