    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has ignited a fresh brushfire of chatter over a possible candidacy on Thursday when she announced a nationwide, campaign-style bus tour to begin Sunday. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who some think could make a stronger run than any of the current candidates, said he's going to "think about" a bid. CNN Poll: Giuliani 16% Romney 15% Palin 13%

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."

We were running a national campaign when we should have been doing is running a local campaign. Alot of candidates make that...

Her critics said she had helped create a political atmosphere that could lead to such an event by previously...

    As a 2008 primary front-runner, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani tanked. But as a 2012 dark horse, he could do surprisingly well. It’s not because Giuliani has shifted; it’s because the Republican Party has. The 2010 election was less about social conservatism than it was fiscal conservatism, and that aligns with Giuliani’s socially moderate and fiscally conservative ideology. There is another promising wind of change blowing Giuliani’s way, one that’s less ideological. This isn’t the era of kinder, gentler politicians. This is the age of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and...

To be blunt, none of the major players from the last election should be anywhere near the 2012 nomination. They have too many skeletons and too little backbone.

John McCain (R-AZ) and Rudy Giuliani have recorded robocalls for South Carolina gubernatorial hopeful Henry McMaster in a last minute get-out-the-vote effort ahead of Tuesday's four-way Republican primary. McCain's call began hitting households over the weekend, while Giuliani's is planned to go out Monday, according to McMaster's campaign. McCain, who won the Palmetto State's pivotal presidential primary in 2008, tells voters that he and his wife Cindy "have a special place in our hearts for the wonderful people of South Carolina." McMaster, the state's Attorney General, was one of McCain's top...

    Here is video of Rudy Giuliani talking with Sean Hannity about a “crisis of competence” in the White House. Giuliani said both the Sestak Job Offer and the offer of jobs to Democrat Andrew Romanoff in Colorado to get him to drop a primary bid against incumbent Democrat Sen. Michael Bennett, should be investigated. On Obama’s handling of the Gulf Crisis, Giuliani said, “It couldn’t be worse.” “This would be an example – if you taught Leadership 101 – of exactly what not to do: Minimize it at first; then a few days after it happens – go on vacation….He...

    Rudy Giuliani is taking sides in the contentious Republican Senate primary battle in Kentucky. The former New York City mayor and 2008 GOP presidential candidate announced Monday that he is endorsing Kentucky Secretary of State Trey Grayson, according to the Grayson campaign. Grayson is involved in a pitched battle with Rand Paul, a physician and the son of former GOP presidential candidate and Texas Rep. Ron Paul, for their party's nomination. Both are trying to succeed Sen. Jim Bunning, the Republican lawmaker who announced last summer that he would not run for a third term. National GOP leaders rallied around...
  • Giuliani: Obama's Anti-Nuke Move 'Left-Wing Dream'

    Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has terse words for Barack Obama’s nuclear policy, describing it as characteristic of an “inept” leader who seems intent on living out a “left-wing dream.” The Obama administration nuclear policy unveiled Tuesday calls for reducing the number of potential American nuclear targets and says the United States would not necessarily use nuclear weapons in response to attacks by chemical or biological weapons. The policy, called a nuclear posture review, followed a year of Pentagon deliberations in consultation with allied governments and was released in advance of Thursday’s signing of a new treaty to succeed...

    The Shark Tank was hinting yesterday about a major endorsement to come next week, although I wasn’t sure if that was an April Fools joke or not. And if it wasn’t, I figured the obvious suspects were Palin or, more importantly, Jeb Bush. Surprise. Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani will campaign with Senate candidate Marco Rubio. The two will appear together Monday in Miami, where Giuliani is expected to endorse Rubio in the Republican primary against Gov. Charlie Crist. In a statement released by the Rubio campaign, Giuliani said, “Marco Rubio is one of the Republican Party’s true rising...

    Attorney General Andrew Cuomo is very popular in New York. Governor David Paterson and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand are not... and they're both up for re-election. Conventional wisdom has had it that Cuomo will run for one of their jobs: Paterson's. Amidst unsourced press reports that Cuomo would begin his campaign for governor sometime in March, Paterson even announced he would not be seeking re-election. But now March has come and just about gone, and there's no announcement. Cuomo, in fact, keeps insisting he's running for attorney general. But it's hard to believe the heretofore ruthless politician, suddenly lacks any ambition...

    Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) will host an event for Rhode Island state Rep. John Loughlin in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday. The event will be at the National Republican Club, with a suggested contribution of $750. Loughlin has also secured commitments from two other 2008 presidential hopefuls -- Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney -- to campaign for him.

    Former New York City mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani minced no words when it came to the Obama administration's massive health care overhaul. In an exclusive interview with CNBC's Maria Bartiromo, Giuliani stated that, plain and simple, it "was an ideological act by the Congress" liberal Democrats "are very happy about." "Instead of privatizing - which is what our government should be doing - we're taking major roles of the economy for the United States government," Giuliani told "Closing Bell" anchor Bartiromo. "And it is not an exaggeration to say we are starting to look more like a European...
  • Will Liz Cheney Attack Rudy Giuliani's Firm For Representing 'Terrorist Detainees'?

    In Liz Cheney's worldview, Rudy Giuliani is a disloyal al Qaeda sympathizer. Let us explain. Yesterday, Cheney's outfit, a group called Keep America Safe, went up with a blistering ad that attacked Justice Department lawyers who previously represented Guantanamo detainees and are now working on detainee issues. The ad dubbed the lawyers "the Al Qaeda Seven" and asked "whose values do they share?" while flashing an image of Osama bin Laden. It turns out that among the many high-profile lawyers who have represented so-called "terrorist detainees" is a top attorney with Rudy Giuliani's firm, Bracewell Giuliani, according to court documents...

    The Salt Lake Tribune ^ | 2010-01-28 | Derek P. Jensen
    At turns charming about his New York mayoral stint then chippy toward President Barack Obama, Rudy Giuliani delivered a red-meat speech on leadership to a receptive Utah audience Wednesday before a direct question made him pause. "Could there be a Romney-Giuliani ticket in 2012?" Sen. John Valentine, R-Orem, asked the failed 2008 presidential candidate. Giuliani waited for the anxious laughter to fade, then framed a toothy grin. "There could be anything in 2012, who knows?" he told a crowd of nearly 1,000 at the Sheraton Hotel in downtown Salt Lake City. "Things change in American politics almost instantly."
