    Will there be a Bush/Giuliani ticket in '04?

    A well-placed source says that the president will “most likely” drop Dick Cheney from his re-election ticket and his first choice for a replacement is former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani.

    “The issue of Cheney’s health will probably be given as the reason,” says the insider. “There’s a short list of possible replacements, and Rudy is at the top of the list.”

    The source adds that the selection of the former New York mayor may be overridden by Bush advisors from the far right. “Giuliani has been pro-choice, pro-gay rights, and is pretty liberal on some other social issues, but the thinking is that he might broaden Bush’s appeal.”

    If, however, Giuliani gets bumped from the ticket, says the source, “expect him to get a prime assignment in Washington as an consolation prize.”

    Bush’s rep didn’t return calls, and a spokeswoman for Giuliani said, “Rudy Giuliani has been out in Iowa and New Hampshire talking about the incredible accomplishments of Vice President Dick Cheney with George Bush and working very hard to get them both re-elected.”


    granted its only a gossip column at this point but hey.......

    Bush does need to replace Cheney. Cheney is not an heir apparent for 2008. The GOP needs a Veep who can run against Hillary. Giuliani would be perfect.

    I fully support dumping Cheney. It would be a nightmare if he ran vs. hillary in 2008. God! It would be worse than the 2000 race.
