Hewitt on Federalism

In an interview with K-Lo, Hugh Hewitt describes why he prefers Romney to Giuliani:

But Rudy doesn’t care about the Marriage Amendment, and Mitt Romney does. Rudy doesn’t think there’s a problem with funding embryonic stem cell research, and Romney does. Romney’s a federalist, and I’m not sold that Rudy is.

Let me get this straight. Romney, who wants the federal government to ban same sex marriage, is a federalist, but Rudy, who believes the decision should be left to individual states, is not.
