    Moderates blame conservatives By: Lisa Lerer April 28, 2009 01:38 PM EST Two leading Republican moderates say Sen. Arlen Specter's decision to become a Democrat highlights the hostility moderates feel from an increasingly conservative GOP. “You haven't certainly heard warm encouraging words about how [the GOP] views moderates,” said Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe, one of the few remaining moderate Republicans in the Senate. Snowe said the party's message has been, “Either you're with us or you’re against us.” Her frustration was shared by Sen. Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.), who slammed right-wing interest groups for pushing moderates out of the party. Specter...

    Feb. 6, 2007 - Over the last decade, I’ve seen both good Rudy and bad Rudy up close. The question for voters as he enters the presidential campaign is: which Rudy Giuliani will show up on the trail—and which Rudy would go to work in the White House? And if even a little of the bad Rudy is still around, does that make him temperamentally unsuited to the presidency?

    Political pundits have long discounted former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani's presidential prospects, claiming that his particular brand of tough-talking, socially moderate conservatism would never play south of the Mason-Dixon Line. But Rudy has never been one to listen to conventional wisdom, and lately at least, he has been turning up the heat in southern conservative political circles. In just the last week, he endorsed Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry for re-election and met with Evangelicals in Florida. Most impressively, he actually outpaced U.S. Senator John McCain in a just-released Georgia poll, garnering the support of 28 percent of...

    (1010 WINS) (WASHINGTON) Rudolph Giuliani plans to return to politics, he said Wednesday, but argued it's too early to say if that will be for the 2008 presidential campaign. ``I think I'll return to politics,'' said Giuliani during a speech to credit card companies. Giuliani, dubbed ``America's Mayor,'' after his performance as New York City mayor during the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, has spent the years since working as a highly paid corporate executive and public speaker. The first question from audience members at a the gathering concerned his possible return to public office. Asked if he had any...

    Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said Sunday he will contemplate next year whether to run for president in 2008. "I will be considering it next year," Giuliani said during a visit to Denmark. But he added that playing with the idea of running for the Republican nomination for president did not mean he would actually do it. "Sometime you warm up and get ready and you don't get in and pitch," he told reporters, in a baseball analogy. Giuliani who was praised for his leadership following the September 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center, thanked Danish...
