Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani sits down with NewMajority.com's John Avlon to discuss what needs to change for the Republican Party and how it can prevail in the next election.

I wonder if Rudy Giuliani is thinking of taking another stab at running for President in 2012. The RINOs prefer him over Sarah Palin.
I can’t wait to see him dressed in drag on top of his desk in the Oval Office.
Well, actually I can. PASS...
I'm sure McCain has some advice, too. And whatever is left of the "Republican" Rockefeller clan, they can tell us some things, too, and Romney.
But then who will the “moderates” throw their panties at?
Number one..ignore Rudy’s advice. It will take a lot of Rats showing up for the GOP primaries to knock out Palin.
They will try..especially next election when they know that Zero will be their candidate.
Rudy is not a Conservative Republican, he would NEVER get our vote. We regretted voting for McCain, only did so because of Sarah Palin. Never again will we vote for a RINO no matter who their veep pick is.
Advice? here ya go... http://primarychallenge.org
That’s good. Now we know what social positions to NOT take!!!
I wonder if Rudy Giuliani is thinking of taking another stab at running for President in 2012.
Yeah, the only 2008 candidate I wanted to get the nomination less than McCain.
Bet he would have beaten Obama this last time. Obama would not have been able to brand him the Bush 3rd term the way he did Mccain. Plus Rudy would not have suspended his campaign to go to Washington because nothing was as important as going to washington to sign on a trillion dollar bailout.
You’re right, but then we’d be looking forward to 2016 in stead of 2012. Meanwhile, the same garbage that is now coming from Obama would be coming from a Republican.
Myself, and millions of other gun-owning folks who held our noses and voted for McCain would have stayed home if His Excellency Benito Giuliani, Head of Government, Duce of Fascism, Founder of the Empire and Gun Grabbing Megalomaniac had been nominated. Some who voted for Comrade Brobama might have switched to Il Duce, but not enough to make a difference.
Careful. The Giuliani purge was not that long ago.
Yeah, take advice from a guy who couldn’t even get his own campaign bicycle past the first few states in the 2008 primary without popping the tires and losing the chain.
I think it’s time we all face up to the fact that NOBODY the GOP ran this year was going to beat Obama. Not even Hillary the Inevitable could!
Take a look at our candidate, McCain, prone to tripping those of his own party and putting “kick me” notes on their backs. At one time I thought McCain had a chance against Zer0, because he’d be likely to get moderates to vote for him. McCain wouldn’t have gotten all the votes he ended up getting if it wasn’t for Gov. Palin being on the ticket.
Rudy.... remember the Florida strategy? Double-down, go for broke....you went broke.
I've talked to plenty of ex-Giulani supporters who thought Palin was a drag on the ticket and preferred - get this - Joe Lieberman as veep. If McCain did that, he would have suffered a Barry Goldwater defeat.
The middle aged suburban independents, who McCain wanted to woo, would have ended up with Obama. Many uninformed independents vote for the more affable guy. Let's admit it, Obama is more like able than McCain.
That is something you can admit all on your own, and something I will NEVER admit. Affable, huh? Zer0 is a nothingburger community organizer in a Hartmarx suit (who are looking for bailout money themselves, BTW) and not only do I dislike him, I dislike everything he stands for.
All I can tell you is that I did phone banking for McCain, but mostly for Palin, and I talked to a lot of people who were crazy about her. While it's true they could've been just telling me what I wanted to hear, I also heard the same from others who banked as I did.
