Help me understand the appeal of Rudy Giuliani as a presidential candidate. (U.S. electoral politics-filter)

Why does Giuliani lead in all the early polling, aside from the fact that he stood heroically in front of a lot of waving flags -- and was routinely featured as such in endless news coverage -- back in September '01? Is it really just about name recognition, or is there more to it than that? Does he have well-articulated positions on substantive issues that resonate with the electorate? What am I missing here?
What say ye, Metafilter?
