    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?

    Running in 2006 would not prevent him running for pres in 08, regardless, I don't think his experience as mayor will help him become president - he needs a "larger" experience - Senator or Gov. first.

    Not that I'd support him in any regard.

    No. i think he should run for Senate. he will never get elected President despite being such a great guy, but a 2006 run could effectively eliminate Hillary from the 2008 race.

    Coming from someone who banked on the electorate being smart enough to rid itself of a second Clinton administration. (Now acquiescing that Clinton could NOW win another term, :banana2:

    I think Hillary is a non-starter. Too many dislike her too much.

    That is a good point, but most peopl who hold an office like the Senate before running for President do it mostly for the purposes fo name recognition, which I would think Rudy has a lot of at this point.

    Thats besides the point. we all love Rudy but I dont think he could win the Republican Nomination because he is pro choice.
