www.nytimes.com/2005/01/26/nyregion/26rudy.html? The chairman of the New York State Republican Party said yesterday that he planned to ask for mer Mayor Rudolph W. Guiliana to run against Senator hillary Rodham Clinton in 2006, even while Mr Guiliani's camp hinted that he had no desire to take on that race. " I think Rudy would be a great candidate for us," Mr. Munarik said. "I have not had a chat with him about it yet, but I'm going to." Mr Guiliani, through his spokeswoman, Sunny Mindel, said "he is not even thinking about politics right now," and at least one person close to him said he had no desire to be one of 100 senators. The Democarats have already began to rally around the state attorney general, Eliot spitzer, who has announced his plans to run for governor in 2006, and they say they ahve Mrs Clinton's assurance that she will run for re-election..................... My question here is wouldn't it be better to save Rudy for the presidential race in 2008?
