    Back in early May, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he “can probably be talked into” running for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012. A new poll has done some “talking.” The CNN/(Opinion Research Corporation) survey released on Friday found Giuliani leading the pack of potential GOP candidates with 16 percent of the vote among Republicans and independents who lean toward the GOP. Mitt Romney is second with 15 percent, followed by Sarah Palin (13 percent), Ron Paul (12 percent), and Herman Cain (10 percent). The other potential candidates had single-digit percentages. “Call it a sign of how...

    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...

    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 --...
  • Is Rudy Giuliani a 2012 dark horse?

    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...
  • A Mitt-Rudy ticket? Maybe, Giuliani tells Utah crowd (MASSIVE BARF ALERT)

    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."

    New York State is abuzz with speculation that former New York City Mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani will run for governor there in 2010. But the "general consensus" among Republicans around the state is that Rudy won't enter the race, New York magazine reports. The chief reason: He has his eye on the White House in 2012.

    A few months ago, most people assumed former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani's political future was unpromising, to put it nicely. Sure, he might run for governor of New York if Governor Patterson ran for re-election, but his national ship had sailed. After all, if the economy was the big issue, who better to nominate in 2012 than former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney -- who, at Bane Capital, excelled at turning around struggling businesses? Despite getting off to a fast start in the 2008 Republican Primary campaign, Giuliani had faded fast, a victim of poor political strategy and social views...
  • Giuliani Hires Controversial GOP Media Firm (No More Mr. Nice Guy, Time To See the Real Rudy?)

    WASHINGTON - Rudy Giuliani has worked hard to be Mr. Nice Guy in his campaign, but that could change with his hiring of a GOP firm that has drawn fire for controversial TV ads. Giuliani yesterday named Scott Howell & Company to head his media team, and the Dallas-based company has gained a reputation as one of its party's toughest - and most successful - ad-makers. Howell drew fire last year for producing a Republican spot criticizing Democratic Tennessee Rep. Harold Ford's trip to a Playboy party that ended with an actress looking into the camera and saying, "Harold, call...
