Rudy to Run

Well, sort of.

His nascent campaign’s dossier was leaked to the New York Daily News in what is a most embarrassing (and perhaps costly) way.
Malfeasance is being blamed for the leak of such a classified document and the Mayor’s spokeswoman has already responded.

Giuliani spokeswoman Sunny Mindel suggested there were political dirty tricks behind the loss of the documents and called the timing suspicious.

“I wonder why such suspicious activity is occurring and can only guess it is because of Rudy’s poll numbers in New Hampshire and Iowa,” Mindel said.

My guess, good old fashioned incompetence/forgetfulness.

Giuliani’s detractors can take comfort though with this:

One page cites the explicit concern that he might “drop out of [the] race” as a consequence of his potentially “insurmountable” personal and political vulnerabilities.
