    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani isn't just thinking about running for president next year: It's his obsession and he's already mapping out a strategy to knock off GOP frontrunner Mitt Romney in New Hampshire. **SNIP** What's more, adds King, Giuliani has already been "talking to people in New Hampshire" about his strategy to focus all his early attention there, not the Iowa caucus, because beating Romney in the former Massachusetts governor's political backyard will propel the New Yorker's candidacy into the next two showdowns in South Carolina and Nevada. "He would focus on New Hampshire almost entirely," said...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) – How did the perp walk get such a bad rap? When IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was pictured, sweaty and exhausted-looking late Sunday night outside the New York Police Department's Special Victims Unit, some denounced the practice as downright undemocratic. Former French Justice Minister Elisabeth Guigou called the pre-trial publicity "absolutely sickening." And another former French justice minister, Robert Badinter, said the IMF chief had been subjected to "death by media."

    In a speech yesterday to the Republican National Lawyers Association, Rudy Giuliani had plenty to say about President Obama’s foreign policy, American exceptionalism and the Sept. 11 terror attacks. But, his most ear-catching words focused on his potential bid for the presidency in 2012: “I will sure think about it. … It’s too early and I want to see how it all develops. My major goal is to elect a Republican in 2012. If it turns out that I’m the best one to do that, I can probably be talked into doing it or convince myself to do it. If...

    President Barack Obama has extended an invitation to Rudy Giuliani to join him at Ground Zero during his visit to the site of the 9/11 attacks on Thursday, a source told POLITICO. Continue Reading Giuliani and former President George W. Bush both received invitations. Bush declined, with one source suggesting it was to give Obama his moment. It's unclear what Giuliani will do, but the former New York mayor — who vaulted to global fame after the 9/11 terror attacks — spent part of the day on Monday in lower Manhattan near the 16-acre World Trade Center site, and has...

    Former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani told The Washington Times on Tuesday that he is keeping “the door open” to a 2012 presidential bid, saying he might jump into the race if he believes the other candidates are unelectable. Mr. Giuliani is slated to speak next month in New Hampshire, where he finished fourth among 2008 Republican presidential candidates in the first-in-the-nation primaries. “I’m going to go to New Hampshire to speak to a law enforcement group, so that’s really the main purpose of the speech, but I keep in contact with people in New Hampshire and try to...

    It's early yet, but the Grand Old Party clearly has its work cut out to sell the voting American public on a candidate to challenge President Obama in the 2012 national election. A 56 percent majority of Republican voters told a CBS News/New York Times poll that none of the names officially or unofficially in the hat at this stage made them feel enthusiastic as potential nominees.

    Giuliani is scheduled to speak at Cornell’s convocation May 28 at Schoelkopf Stadium. His selection as the first Republican to speak at this Ivy League school follows a long list of Democrats since 1984. In 2010, the school selected then-Democratic U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. “It is encouraging to see that there’s a consideration of the other side, which I know a lot of us hadn’t thought was the case,” a member of the Cornell Republicans told the Cornell Daily Sun earlier this week.

    On a weekend trip to the University of Arkansas, Rudy Giuliani talked about the possibility of running for president again. "My concern about 2012 is -- because I'm a Republican -- to make sure that the Republican party fields a candidate that can win. And if I think that I can help by being a candidate, then that would probably persuade me to do it, but if I can help supporting another candidate, then I'd probably do that." And there's time to figure that out. The good thing about this election -- as opposed to four years ago --...

    GREENLAND, NH (CBS) – Rudy Giuliani is testing the waters to see if he wants to run for President, again. Giuliani, who visited the Country View Restaurant in Greenland, NH Friday, says he’s learned some lessons from the last lackluster campaign. “I’d spend a lot more time in New Hampshire.” He explains, “We were so busy building a national campagin and raising 50 or 60 million dollars that we didn’t give each of the primary states enough attention. We were running a national campaign when we should have been doing is running a local campaign. Alot of candidates make that...

    MANCHESTER, N.H. — A day after Donald Trump raised questions about President Barack Obama’s citizenship, Rudy Giuliani on Friday swatted down the "birthers" as a waste of time, saying it's "clear" the president was born in America. The former New York City mayor — making his first trip to New Hampshire of the 2012 presidential cycle as he weighs another run for the White House — made the comments to POLITICO just before he spoke at the Manchester GOP Lincoln Day dinner here. "He's born in the United States, I don't see any real question about that," Giuliani said. "And...

    So what if Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Newt Gingrich decide not to run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 or their campaigns falter in the early going? Who will the GOP turn to? That’s what Rasmussen Reports asked Likely Republican Primary voters in a new national telephone survey. Not surprisingly the best known of the eight other prominent Republicans mentioned came out on top. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani emerges as the clear leader among this group with 29% support. Tim Pawlenty, who recently stepped down as governor of Minnesota, comes in second with...

    Rudy Giuliani has already announced that he’s “considering” a run for president in 2012, but, as he tells Piers Morgan in Monday’s episode of Piers Morgan Tonight, he’ll be much more likely to run if Sarah Palin decides to as well. Giuliani says that running against Palin would position him as a “moderate Republican” in contrast to Palin’s views. Morgan called him the “acceptable face of the Republican party,” to which America’s Mayor replied, “Well. I don’t know if I’m acceptable. The way I got elected as mayor of New York City was not being acceptable. My slogan was ‘You...

    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...

    Rudy Giuliani says he might again for president. The former New York City mayor says he's more likely to run if former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin runs. Giuliani made the comment during an interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight." When Giuliani ran in 2008, Texas Gov. Rick Perry enthusiasticly campaigned for him in Iowa and Florida. They traveled the Sunshine State aboard a campaign bus, where Perry made speeches vouching for Rudy's Republican values. But Republicans didn't buy it. Voters were turned off by former New York mayor's support of gun control , gay marriage and abortion rights.

    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said he is "absolutely" open to a run for president in 2012. Giuliani, the mayor of New York during the 9/11 terrorist attacks who ran for president in 2008, hinted more strongly that he might seek the Republican nomination to challenge President Obama's reelection. "I will take a look at 2012. It's really a question of, can I play a useful role? Would I have a chance of getting the nomination? Those are things that I'll have to evaluate as the year goes along," Giuliani said Thursday night on CNBC's "The Kudlow...

    Onetime Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani on Sunday defended Sarah Palin’s response to critics who placed partial blame for the shooting that injured Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.) on the former Alaska governor. But Giuliani and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) questioned the wisdom of her response. Several days after the mass shooting in Tucson, Ariz., Palin posted a video statement on her Facebook page charging her critics in the media had committed a “blood libel” for pinning blame on her. Her critics said she had helped create a political atmosphere that could lead to such an event by previously...

    "Confident that he'd have a chance to win, Rudy Giuliani is rounding up his top political advisers for a possible 2012 presidential run, sources tell Page Six. Sources say the tough-talking former mayor "thinks the Republican race will be populated with far-right candidates like Mitt Romney, Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee, and there's opportunity for a moderate candidate with a background in national security." Giuliani has even scheduled a trip to New Hampshire for next month to meet with constituents in the state that failed him in January 2008, when he placed fourth in the Republican presidential primary.
