Giuliani Eyes Presidential Bid If Palin Runs Too

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he is “more likely” to run for president in 2012 if former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin makes a bid, according to snippets from an interview to air on CNN Monday night released on Twitter.

“The more Republicans in which I can show a contrast, probably the better chance, the better chance that I have,” Mr. Giuliani is quoted as saying on CNN host Piers Morgan’s Twitter account. “My one chance, if I have a chance, is that I’m considered a moderate.”

The implication being that Ms. Palin, a tea party favorite, is not a moderate.

Ms. Palin, Sen. John McCain’s running mate in 2008, is widely assumed to be readying a run at the presidency next year. But only 27% of Americans have a positive impression of her, an all-time low, according to a Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll released this week.

It was my impression that Giuliani took himself out of major contention by ignoring New Hampshire and Iowa, and concentrating solely on Florida.

Wherever he came up with that notion of presidential campaigning is beyond me, LOL

Don’t we have ANYONE out there like Reagan? Somewhere?

I don’t want anyone danced out so far. Am I hoping for too much?
