Former NY Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who demonstrated real rather than feigned leadership on the day of and weeks following September 11, 2001, has said that there is a “good chance” he will run for the Republican presidential nomination.
Giuliani does have impressive leadership skills, but he also has some “buddy old pal” problems that I can’t find he has addressed adequately. If others know where he’s talked about his political, personal, and business dealings with Bernard Kerik, please feel free to post the link in the comments section.
But if Rudy has a lot of Kerik-type pals, it’s not off-base speculating that a “Lincoln Bedroom Scandal 2.0” might accompany his presidency.
