    Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani said he's more likely to run for president if former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin runs.

    In an interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight," 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.

    "The more Republicans in which I can show a contrast, probably the better chance, the better chance that I have," Giuliani told CNN's Piers Morgan in an interview set to air at 9 pm. ET Monday. Portions of the interview will air Friday (tonight) on CNN's "John King, USA" at 7 p.m. ET.

    I wonder if Ron Paul will give it another go.

    you know if between him and his son, they can force the auditing of the FED RESERVE, and expose a lot of the bullshit thats been done, he just might get the chance, and he'd be a 100 times better choice than these others mentioned so far.

    Sadly, he won't win because of the social conservatives who will push hard to make sure he isn't elected.

    I still so would like to see him elected more than any other candidate.

    I don't think it's necessarily bad if Guiliani runs and wins. As of now, I'd still vote Obama over him though.

    honestly I dont think Palin will run, or would she win.

    But if she did, it would be a huge lightning rod for the vitriol and negative feelings and soft money from George Soros.

    It would be brilliant however if she gave it a whirl .

    Maybe they will hire Olberman back for old times sake.

    I don't think Palin will run either. That said, I think if she did run she would be a great deal more moderate on social issues than people think. Just a hunch.

    We may be at a point were that didnt matter so much. Just as Obamas political holdings and relative inexperience didnt matter so much after GW Bush.

    Except you overlook one very important fact:

    The "mainstream" media is still overpopulated by baby boomer, liberal, leftists who will find anything and everything they possibly can to discredit any Republican. And if they can't find anything, they'll report "speculation" of these "alleged skeletons."



    Please spare us your "liberal media" clap trap. The media reports on whatever priorities the corporations who own it set for them. Or, it reports on non-stories like Palin's latest tweet, to keep the masses uninformed.

    There is no liberal media.

    Incorrect.

    However, the "mainstream media" is liberal.


    Dude - There may have been a point int he 60s and 70s where the media was "liberal" but that's over.

    There is largely a corporate controlled media, with most outlets being owned by large corporations.

    It would be one thing if Katrina vanden Huevel were hosting the 8 pm slot on CNN but that's not reality.

    OK, here's the disconnect. You are using the word "controlled" in place of "owned" and what I'm saying is that GE hasn't dictated content at NBC News anymore than Viacom dictates content at CBS News or Disney at ABC News (television side).

    There still exists a firewall between the corporate ownership side and the operations side. And those on the operations side are mostly baby boomer liberals.


    Wow. If you even believe a scintilla of what you wrote there, you're incredibly naive.

    I had no idea Fox news is liberal. Missed that memo.
