When I made the list of potential candidates for 2012, Rudy Giuliani was not included because I was sure he had no interest in running again. I mean come on, the guy had to drop out of the race near the very beginning after his strategy proved to be a flop, so I thought it was safe to not include him in the list. However, this past Sunday, Rudy left the options open for a run for Governor of New York, as well as a second presidential bid in 2012. Following a speech in Dubai, Rudy said, “No one knows whether you’ll do something again until you come to the point of: ‘Is it possible to do it again? Would you have a chance of winning?’ I mean those are just things you can’t evaluate right now.”
I think he should go for it again. He’s got a good chance if he works at it, and he ranks in the top 4 or 5 of my personal favorite contenders. So I’d be pleased. However, If he wants the nomination he will have to come at it with a different strategy than this past attempt. He put all his eggs in one basket and when that basket fell they all broke and he had to drop out (Please excuse the cliche, Haha). The 2012 election is going to hinge quite a bit on how Barack does and how many people he lets down along the way. If he manages to do well, then our selection of Republican candidate will be far different than if he flops. Anyway, if he does go for it and fails, he should serve on the cabinet should the Republican nominee win. I think he’s a very smart guy and is very good at what he does. I’m sure he’d be the top choice for Attorney General.
