Giuliani vs. Palin?

Posted by loricalabrese on January 23, 2011

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani will appear on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” on Monday and says he’s “more likely” to run for president in 2012 if former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin runs.

Host Piers Morgan teased his audience with a few quotes on Twitter from the upcoming interview. Giuliani is quoted as saying, “The more Republicans in which I can show a contrast, probably the better chance, the better chance that I have … My one chance, if I have a chance, is that I’m considered a moderate.”

Giuliani, who dropped out of the 2008 Republican presidential primary, said running against Palin for the 2012 GOP nomination would show him as a moderate Republican.

Giuliani also says he would concentrate on winning Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, sites of the first presidential nominating contests, since in 2008 he focused his resources in Florida and that didn’t work.

So is Giuliani serious about running?

“I will take a look at 2012,” Mr. Giuliani told Larry Kudlow on CNBC Thursday night. “It’s really a question of, can I play a useful role? Would I have a chance of getting the nomination? Those are things that I’ll have to evaluate, you know, as the year goes along.”

    This has been a VERY interesting development in the past few days – the possibility of Giuliani running for the GOP candidacy in 2012!

    I was initially a big supporter of Giuliani and was a volunteer in CA calling registered GOP voters to gauge the level of interest in his candidacy. There were a whole group of us that we VERY enthusiastic, but the truth is that our telephone respondees (and we did this over the course of several weeks in 2007) were far less enthusiastic and, in fact, surprised us with the relatively lukewarm response – even though he was personally very popular. Even then, it sppeared, his liberal social positions (which we accepted and/or supported because we felt they were more than balanced out by his tough & intelligent foreign policy stance) were a liability for the average GOP voter.

    My guess is that the Conservative base is stronger than ever; and although Giuliani remains personally very popular and admired, the average GOP Conservative does NOT support him for POTUS.

    It’s also my guess that Palin WILL run – so this may (or may not) signal that Giuliani will run as well, just to position himself, as he says, as a “moderate.” If that’s the case, this may still not be his year…
