Rudy Giuliani’s term as mayor was one of the best things that ever happened to NYC. He’d be a godsend over Patterson.
Which is what I fail to understand about the man ... the Governorship was his for the taking in 2006, why did he instead attempt to run for POTUS? Likewise challenging Hillary for Senate that same year, or Schmuckie in 2004?
He might not have won those elections, but he surely would have made them into more of contest than they turned out to be.
Running for POTUS instead? That was a dead duck from the very start.
