    Rudy continues to play coy about challenging Gov. Paterson. So what's keeping him from making up his mind? "NY is in pretty bad shape. If I thought I could make a real difference," he told a Crain's NY breakfast, "I would do it." Two terms as mayor and more than three decades in the public eye, and he still doesn't know whether he can make a difference? The election is 15 months away. But Giuliani other candidates biding their time waiting for Rudy to make up his mind would need every bit of that time to run an effective race........

    Rudy Giuliani’s consulting firm was hired in 2002 to help a Florida company build its business under a contract that called for Mr. Giuliani’s firm to be paid in part for lining up work with the federal government and other clients, company records show. Federal law prohibits payment of a commission in return for a federal contract... The deal between the firm and the contractor, Seisint of Boca Raton, was signed with the expectation that Mr. Giuliani’s high profile and connections would help the start-up company obtain federal contracts as well as nongovernment work, said Michael Brauser, co-founder of Seisint...

    Matthew Mahoney, $30,000-a-month executive director of the Senate Republican Campaign Commmittee and one-time head of Giuliani's presidential field operations was relieved of overall responsibility for the NY Senate's GOP campaign and told to concentrate on fund-raising and administrative chores....(rather than pushing the ex-mayor for governor). The demotion was also tied to Giuliani's failure to deliver on pledges to raise substantial amounts of cash for Republican efforts to hold the Senate. Giuliani was supposed to announce the creation of a fund-raising committee to collect cash for the Senate GOP, which some believe is designed to bolster the ex-mayor should he run...

    Hillary and Rudy's campaign similarities are striking. Let us count the ways: BLAME GAME CLINTON Hillary's removal of campaign manager Patti Solis Doyle was disloyal to Hispanics says Steven Ybarra, a California superdelegate (heads voting-rights committee of DNC's Hispanic Caucus).....Clinton is looking for Texas and Ohio Latino voters March 4, and had scored a win with California Hispanics Ybarra said, and the loss of Solis Doyle, a child of Mexican immigrants, just weeks before the Texas primary, where 36% of the population is Hispanic, was "dumb as a stump."

    For 50 days, Giuliani had the Sunshine State nearly to himself........he’s sucked up to Miami's Cuban vote, pandered in Cape Canaveral about the space program, tried to scare retirees in South Florida. There he is riding in a fire truck in a Miami parade, trailed by angry firefighters who blame him for multiple failures when NY was the Panhandle, he's the consummate Yankees fan trying to look down-home on the Redneck Riviera. Yet, the more they see of Giuliani, the more his poll numbers tank...... Rudy’s campaign is in meltdown. Amazing how much voters bring up his tawdry personal...

    Their title, not mine. It is important from all of the Rudy clips and quotes to notice a pattern of public insulting, name-calling, and contempt for people who disagree with him. This is not a man who treats people with respect. He is a man who insults people deeply, ridicules them, and tries to intimidate people who disagree with him. This is a pattern we have seen 1,000,000 times. Those who think that we're going to put him in the White House and suddenly have an understanding ally are very, very naive. He'll be calling the NRA "predators" again, and...

    Giuliani Accused Of 'Notorious Adultery' NEW YORK, June 21, 2002 (AP) Former Mayor Rudolph Giuliani's estranged wife has filed for divorce, citing adultery. The filing by Donna Hanover, 52, came more than a year and a half after Giuliani filed to divorce her, citing cruel and inhuman treatment. Hanover's lawyer, Helene Brezinsky, said her client rejected the grounds on which Giuliani's divorce was based. "If there's going to be a divorce, let's have the truth about why — Rudy's open and notorious adultery," she said. Giuliani spokeswoman Sunny Mindel replied: "There is no purpose in responding to this mudslinging." Hanover's...

    Giuliani Discusses His Democratic Past Feb 26 4:11 PM US/Eastern By LIZ SIDOTI Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republican presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani addressed his Democratic past on Tuesday and offered one reason for his political conversion _ the economy and taxes. "I don't think anything separates us more right now between Republicans and Democrats than how we look at taxes," the former New York mayor said. "What we understand as Republicans is that, sure, the government is an important player in this, but we are essentially a private economy. What Democrats really believe ... is that it is...
