    Former Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani has decided not to run for governor of New York next year after months of mulling a candidacy, according to people who have been told of the decision. .. It remains unclear whether the former mayor is considering any other political race in 2010. Some have urged him to take on the newly installed Senator Kirsten E. Gillibrand, who has never run statewide and is still introducing herself to voters in parts of the state. The decision will be a boon to other Republican contenders. So far, Rick Lazio, a former congressman from Long Island,...

    Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, a potential 2010 gubernatorial candidate, is being urged to take over the state GOP after a disastrous election that cost Republicans control of the Senate, insiders told The Post. At the same time, current state GOP Chairman Joseph Mondello, the Nassau County leader widely criticized as ineffective and out-of-touch, is being encouraged to step aside, and is expected to do so by the end of the year, the insiders said. Giuliani has been told that he has just a few weeks to fill a leadership void that could result in the party splintering into Long Island...
  • Why is GOP sneering at Obama's work as community organizer?

    As a community organizer in Chicago, Barack Obama didn't accomplish much. He'd be the first to tell you that. He got a job bank opened and brought public attention to an asbestos problem at a housing project. He had his failures, too. But Obama's record of accomplishment wasn't what Republicans were criticizing last week when they sneered at his time working for the city's poor from 1985 to 1988. They lambasted the job itself. "He worked as a community organizer," former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said in an ugly speech Wednesday night to much sneering in the convention arena....

    Conventional wisdom dictates that Democratic voters are thrilled with their choices for president, bursting at the seams to rally behind Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.), Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) or whoever gets the party's nod next year. A recent survey by Democratic pollster Celinda Lake, however, showed Clinton and Obama trailing former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani (R) in the 31 Democratic-held House districts regarded as most imperiled in 2008, and even potentially serving as a drag on those lawmakers' reelection chances.

    OLIN–Last weekend Deb and Jerry VonSprecken of Olin received a call from former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani’s campaign office asking them if they would be interested in holding a campaign rally on May 4, after she had donated to his campaign. “We thought it would be an honor and agreed,” said Jerry. The campaign office continued to contact the VonSpreckens throughout last weekend and were told a security check would be needed. The couple passed the security check and began putting plans in place. “We started making phone calls. We got the sheriff and fire department and Olin...

    TALLAHASSEE, Florida (CNN) -- Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani told CNN Wednesday he supports public funding for some abortions, a position he advocated as mayor and one that will likely put the GOP presidential candidate at odds with social conservatives in his party. "Ultimately, it's a constitutional right, and therefore if it's a constitutional right, ultimately, even if you do it on a state by state basis, you have to make sure people are protected," Giuliani said in an interview with CNN's Dana Bash in Florida's capital city. A video clip of the then-mayoral candidate issuing a similar...

    Why, in poll after poll, including the new TIME poll, does that advantage seem to disappear whenever voters are asked to pick a president in hypothetical head-to-head match-ups among front-runners with solid name recognition. In our poll, Hillary Clinton loses to John McCain, 42-48%, and to Rudy Giuliani 41-50%. Even though Clinton maintains a 7% edge over Obama among Democratic respondents, Obama fares better in the general election match-ups. It's so close that it's a statistical dead-heat, but Obama still loses: 43-45% to McCain, 44-45% to Giuliani. It's hard to know exactly why respondents who are generally unhappy towards —...

    March 13, 2007 1:00 a.m. Eastern [The] "Hustle" may have been a line dance we did back in the days of disco, but today it's what GOP leadership and a complicit media are trying to do to the voters responsible for the Republican Party's successes since Ronald Reagan. Realistic chances of winning notwithstanding, there are no fewer than 13 Republicans in the contest for the 2008 presidential sweepstakes. But to hear party leadership and the media spin promote the candidates, one easily gets the impression that John McCain, Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney are not just the only candidates, but...

    Well, back from my brief visit to C-PAC with a few observations. (I promised some here I would report, so here 'tis.) 1) On Thurs., Fr. John Putka of the University of Dayton (as he always does) arranged for an extended meeting between UD students and guests and a Supreme Court justice, in this case, Justice Clarence Thomas. Two years ago we got to pose for pics afterwards, but this year Father had approximately 50 people, so we didn't get to do the photo session. Justice Thomas reiterated his complete adherence to the Constitution, even when it means he doesn't...

    Long dismissed by Washington insiders as incapable of receiving the Republican Party's presidential nomination because of his pro-abortion rights, pro-gay rights and pro-gun control views, former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani was lavished with praise Friday by an icon of American conservatism. "He is much stronger than anyone could have predicted six months ago," said former Republican House Speaker Newt Gingrich from Georgia. "New York is four times safer than it used to be. It's one of the greatest achievements of government capability in the 20th century. And Rudy just has to go out and say, 'This is who...

    NEW YORK (AFP) - By a 67-47 percent margin, New Yorkers think senator and former first lady Hillary Clinton would do a better job as US president than their former mayor Rudolph Giuliani, a Quinnipiac University poll found. Of the two, only Republican Giuliani, 62, has set up a committee to explore a possible run in the 2008 presidential election. Speculation is rampant, however, that Clinton will run as well after she was reelected the US Senate from New York on November 7. In the poll, 33 percent of New Yorkers said Giuliani would make "a bad president" and 24...

    America's Mayor? Maybe. But America's President? So Rudy Giuliani has announced his intention to run for president. Well, to be exact, he has formed an organisation to explore a bid for the presidency. When Giuliani's marriage collapsed, he moved in with two gay men and a Chihuahua named Bonnie. Is America ready for this man? His announcement came as no great surprise, as he has been scratching his chin about this for 12 months. That didn't stop the New York tabloids from giving him front-page treatment. The Daily News headline was "Rudy, Set, Go!" The New York Post said: "Count...

    Earlier this week we learned that Rudolph Giuliani has filed papers to form an exploratory committee. That's the first step to running for president. Well .. .it didn't take long for the religious right to announce that up with this they will not put. Colleen Parro, the head of some group called the Republican National Coalition for Life says that Giuliani is "absolutely unacceptable under any circumstances." The two issues she cited? Homosexuals and abortion. Now ... what was it I said earlier this week that made so many zealots so unhappy? Oh yeah .. it was something about us...

    Rudy Guiliani has marched in lockstep with liberals on affirmative action, gay rights, gay marriage, gun control, school prayer, tuition tax credits, liberal immigration policies, and he's reinforced it, time and time again. Just about everytime Rudy opens his mouth, offensive liberal words come pouring out. As Mayor, Rudy put liberals in high-paid city jobs, an indication what a Rudy WH would look like. Here then is Rudy in his own words: --The New York State Liberal Party on its endorsement of Rudy Giuliani for Mayor: "When the Liberal Party Policy Committee reviewed a list of key social issues of...

    Md. cardinal to boycott Giuliani speech 5/18/2005, 11:11 p.m. ET The Associated Press BALTIMORE (AP) — Cardinal William Keeler will not attend a Jesuit university commencement because keynote speaker Rudolph Giuliani, a Catholic, supports abortion rights, an official said Wednesday. Giuliani, the Republican former New York City mayor mentioned as a possible candidate for president in 2008, is expected to award some 1,600 degrees and certificates at Friday's commencement at Loyola College of Maryland. He also is to receive an honorary degree. Friday's graduating class entered the school one week before the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, said Loyola spokesman...

    Sorry for the vanity, but.....
    Ok, First off, sorry for the Vanity. And this is my first ever new thread. I would be interested in your opinions on this. Nominating Rudy Guliani in '08 would be almost certain failure for the GOP. Tuesday's election screamed few things to me: CONSERVATISM!!! MORAL VALUES, and ANTI GAY-MARRIAGE. The voting block that delivered the vote most consistently for W was Evangelical Christians. Fully 25% of all Ohio voters put themselves in that category, and they voted 3-1 for Bush. Without that block, Bush loses the election. Evangelicals were driven to the polls by 1. a man of character,...

If the Republican Party had wanted to play up the moderate angle, they'd have put together the same sort of multihued and gender-balanced schmaltzfest they did in 2000. McCain, Giuliani and Schwarzenegger are speaking because they are brave. I don't know if you have noticed, but this whole campaign has revolved around courage. From the day Howard Dean took on the...

    When Michael Bloomberg was in the final stretch of the 2001 mayor's race, the billionaire Republican's TV ads warned that his Democratic foe, if elected, would wreck the City Hall of then-Mayor Rudolph Giuliani. But once in office, Bloomberg reversed course on dozens of Giuliani policies and practices, even as he sought to avoid directly antagonizing the ex-mayor. "At the beginning everything is couched in terms of what your predecessor would do,” Bloomberg said in an interview. "And with time, nobody asks. They understand that you have your own style.” "Look -- I think when you look back, Rudy Giuliani...
