They hopes to win the keys to the White House. Instead, they got tickets to Yankee Stadium.
Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, whose presidential aspirations collapsed in humiliating defeat in Florida last year, and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the failed GOP veep pick, enjoyed a game at Yankee Stadium on Sunday.
The GOP political duo and their spouses exchanged laughs, smiles and small talk as they watched the Yanks take on Tampa Bay. At one point, Giuliani snapped a photo of his wife, Judith, with Alaska's First Couple.
Giuliani invited the Palins to the game when he learned they would be in town this weekend.
On Saturday, Palin was in upstate Auburn, marching in a parade to raise money for a museum honoring William Seward, the former secretary of state who bought Alaska from Russia.
Sunday night on Long Island, the self-described pit bull with lipstick received an award from Independent Group Home Living Foundation, a nonprofit that supports people with disabilities. Palin's youngest son, Trig, has Down syndrome.
While her trip here was billed as nonpolitical, she found time at an event on Saturday to criticize President Obama's national security and energy policies, as well as his handling of the nation's economic crisis.
But Sunday's meeting at the ballpark was purely casual, a source told the Daily News. Giuliani, who is eying a bid for governor in New York, and Palin, who may run for the White House in 2012, were just enjoying the game, the source said.
The Palins left sometime in the sixth inning for the awards dinner.
"We brought her here because of her advocacy and her stance as a parent," said Walter Stockton, head of the group that honored Palin. "Whether she was a Republican or Democrat really didn't matter to us."

Nope, no bias here...
Uh, oh. Sarah and Rudy? There goes her FR support.
Rudy has good and bad going for him, but I do credit him with staying what he believes and not taking s__t from the media. While most of the loser Republicans are out bashing Palin as unnamed sources, Rudy is out in public with her. Good for him.
She lost my support after her Univision interview.
she’s a beautiful woman.
What’s the deal on the Univision interview? I hadn’t heard about that one.
“Rudy has good and bad going for him”
I thought it was just all “bad”. /rolls eyes
Yep. I didn’t even read the article. If she cozies up to Rudy in any way whatsoever, she’s politcially tone deaf. He’s a phony and a loser from the git.
Rudy is a has-been, which is still better than a never-was.
Deb was being facetious.
I guess that depends on who it’s “better” for - us or him? It’s better for me that he’s a has-been, but as for his place on the national political stage, it would have been better for him to be a “never-was” as far as I’m concerned.
I had more respect for Rudy when he stood up to a bully that was trying to assault him a few weeks ago in public...
Yep. I didnt even read the article. If she cozies up to Rudy in any way whatsoever, shes politcially tone deaf. Hes a phony and a loser from the git.
Economics: mixed (but more conservative than not)
Social issues: mixed (tough on crime, soft on moral issues.)
He has always bee consistent in his positions.
Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water here. Rudy is the kind of guy that can get elected in the NE. He would be way too conservative to be a Democrat in any part of the country.
She said that it wasn’t feasible to deport all illegals and that there should be a path of citizenship for migrant workers.
“She said that it wasnt feasible to deport all illegals and that there should be a path of citizenship for migrant workers.”
Wrong and Wrong.
