Thank you for the article on Mr. Giuliani. I didn't know he served as Number three in the Justice Dept., overseeing DEA and all the States Attorneys.

Although he's pretty liberal in some "family issue" areas, his amazing and almost unbelieveable transformation of crime in New York and his steadfastness during the WTC bombings made the most populous city in the country a model for other cities in both civility and safety.

I like what he said about immigration, too: "Millions of people from all over the world have come to NYC, not to be taken care of, or to be dependent on the government, but for the freedom to take care of themselves."

He also blows away any other candidate so far in terms of exceutive experience.

"Giuliani was more direct. "I'm in this to win," he said. "My campaign is going to be about the future.""

I have to ask, do candidates really enter just to LOSE? Do campaigns about the past ever get anyone elected?

I can't imagine spending 2 years of your life shaking hands, schmoozing, making commercials, spending money frivolously and letting 'journalists' delve into your personal business just to wind up unemployed. Hmmmm....sound kind of like KFed doesn't it? ;)

It's interesting that we have another Love Triangle story in the news. Wasn't there one a few weeks back regarding a Belgian gal who died when her parachute did not open and they are suspecting a female who dated her partner to be the one that cut the cords? Who would have thought that jealousy would lead to such crimes of passion. Personally, I don't think any dude is really worth killing for.

Giuliani has incredible leadership qualities and his ability to unite and boost morale in dire times is remarkably uplifting. Take NYC, he completely turned it around.

The comments about his lack of wisdom and understanding of grandiose politics are probably irrelevant because what a Mayor can do for such a large city is just a microcosm of what a President should do for the country. I'm curious to see what happens.

* Iraq~ More embarrassing chaos
*Giulliani~ He's pretty cool for a
republican.
*Austronaut love tirangle~this story is "out there".

*Haggard~Who is he kidding besides
himself?
*Federal agent prentrated Hell's angel, fears for his life~ He should move to Hell, Grand Cayman. At least he could hide in paradise!

I'm sure Mr. Giuliani, as well as the other candidates, each have wonderful ideals and visons for the future...but it feels like we are being saturated with candidates from both parties. It's like they're all following the "Monkey see, monkey do" mentality. What the heck, maybe I'll throw my hat into the race. While we're at it, maybe you should too, Anderson...

I think I like Mr. Giuliani. It's a shame we feel the need to pick political labels. I'm a realist, and I think he is too. I would definitely consider voting for him as president. He shares a lot of my liberal views and he's proven that he can take charge of a crisis situation (Mr. Ray Nagin-take note). And why should it matter that he's been divorced? Who cares-it's not like he has a dismembered body in the trunk of his car. People need to get off of their high moral horse on things like divorce.
And that astronaut...can you say CRAZY?? Yeah, she drove all the way to Orlando wearing a diaper to discuss things. You can always gauge the severity of something based on whether or not you're willing to crap in your pants for it. Didn't her mother ever tell her that NO MAN is worth going to jail for? Oh wait-except for Jude Law.

Boy, THE story is really the Haggard one. So long the dog ate my homework and the devil made me do it. "It's just situational acting-out." That sure has endless possibilities. Think about.

I think that Giuliani would be a fantastic President because he can handle terror. This is from Giuliani did not buckle under pressure during 911 but he gave his all to help ease some of the pain of New York. I would vote for Giuliani for President...

It would be great to see a Republican candidate who didn't bow down to the intolerance of the extreme right. Aren't they the ones who've screwed the party with their hypocracy? And speaking of hypocracy, what about that Haggard guy who's now "completely heterosexual"? Hahahaha! Whatta clown! Why would any reasonable thinking person from either party try to win over these losers?

Formidalble to say the least--that is what all America should see in Rudy Giuliani. If the flashbacks from 9-11 are any indication of his presidential qualitites he is well on his way. The former New York mayor became America's mayor and touched the hearts of people all over this great country of ours. His down to Earth tactics in dealing with the tragedy in his city painted a true portrait of what Mr. Giuliani is made of. He is made of the stuff that America needs to take her into a bright and safer future. Rudy has foresight and experience that would allow him to serve America and the world into the 21st century as a positive ambassador for future generations. Go for it Rudy G.--we need your expertise and vision!
