Watch Giuliani on American Morning Thursday.
(CNN) – Rudy Giuliani, former presidential candidate turned John McCain supporter, said Thursday that a Democrat could conceivably occupy the number 2 spot on the Republican presidential ticket.
“The reality is either way you might see something like that,” the former New York City mayor told CNN’s Kiran Chetry on American Morning when asked about talk of Sen. Barack Obama choosing a Republican like Sen. Chuck Hagel as his running mate.
Giuliani said he has not spoken with McCain about possibly choosing a Democratic running mate. “But, if you’re asking me is it possible in this day and age that you could have a ticket like that? I think so.”
While he conceded that he could think of “a couple” Democrats who might fit the bill as potential McCain VP’s, Giuliani said the decision was ultimately McCain’s.
Watch: Giuliani on American Morning
I hope he chooses Hillary so her and her PUMA can go away once and for all.
Old Politics VS the New (the future)
I choose the New
2 Words: Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton WOULD NEVER....EVER....SUPPORT A REPUBLICAN AFTER THE WAY HE WAS TREATED BY HIM. Hillary does still have some self-respect. NO WAY IN HELL.
Again, the republicans keep following Obama!!! Obama has great judgement, they know it and they follow!!!! The republicans in no way have a VP pick like Obama has Hagel!!! Eat your words McBush!!
Hillary is too much of a traditional Democrat (and would be wary of burning bridges for the future) to run with McCain in the unlikely eventy that he asks her. Having said that, in theory it would be a ticket I could support.
Any democrat stupid enough to align themself year with McCain deserves the whuppin' they're gonna get – unless of course it's turncoat LIE-berman.
Rudy did fall off a turnip wagon.
I am speachless
How much can you pick on Gepeto Lieberman ..
He like to be around his Buddies McShame and Pinochio Bush..
Let him be..
What does he know? He didn't win a single primary and we're supposed to think he's credible?

Good – let Obama pick Hagel and then McCain can pick Hillary!!!!!!!!! That would suit me just fine since I am a Hillary supporter that is voting for McCain!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sick & tired of Obama snubbing Hillary!!!!!!!! She should be his VP pick with NO questions or vetting asked – he's just Mr. Uppity!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It would be fine with me if falls all the way down!
Mccain may as well pick Hillary, she gave him the blueprint for his campaign. Just be mean, nasty and have no real plan, oh and have a sense of entitlement. Obama should snub Hillary, after all, she did run in the Democratic primary as a Republican. If Mccain wants her, he can have her. PLEASE TAKE HER..............
To informed florida voter
The person who would be in charge would be McCain and conisdering the man knows nothing about the economy or anything other than war then it wouldn't matter if she were on the ticket. The country will be in further trouble that we already are. End of story.
I doubt Clinton would go for being his second anyway.
Try and keep some grip on reality cause you are starting to loose it.

Wow, what a non-story.
It's also possible he might pick a ring-tailed lemur. Possible, but not likely.
See, I can do it too.
Um, little fact check here. Half of democrats are not voting for McSame. Only about 10%, which is in line with the normal cross-over in any election.
Hillary will never join mccain she dislikes mccain as well as the whole republican party, And the republicans cant stand her mr 911 man is blowing hot air!!!!!!!!
Republicans keep sending out people with just mouth. We will not be fools this election Giuliani. If this is really what McCain is planning on doing Giuliani , PROVE IT. ENOUGH with you singing the same old song….If this is true, tell McCain to choose and let it be known before the Democrats convention.
Same old Threats, promises and trickery. Why do they take us as fools to believe anything Giuliani or McCain say?.....McCain flip flops so much, when it’s time for him to announce his VP, he won’t even remember Giuliani making such a comment.
Giuliani, we didn’t see him in the media this much when it was annouced he was cheating on his wife.
I agree, what a person of a non-story.
The world does need a uniter.
Let's be honest Hillary supporters:
Hillary is not as upset as the rest of you. She would never join a McCain ticket. Why? Because she has spent her whole life working for liberal causes, getting health care and advancing women's rights. If McCain wins this election, no woman, including Hillary, will become president for 40 years, as McCain will roll back women's rights to the 60's. Was Hillary screwed? Probably. Is that a good reason to vote McCain? Of course not.
Lastly, VP is the scum bucket job of the U.S. government. If you really want her to have power, make her secretary of state. If really want to support Hillary, elect Obama and get her in the cabinet so she can do some real good for the country.
I think Hillary has no interest in becoming a VP for either McCain or nobama. She's hoping for McCain to win so she can have a shot at presidncy in 2012.
Who knows? Maybe Rudy is referring to Jesse Jackson or Sam Nunn or someone from the DLC. Alot of Democrats have been thrown under the Obama bus, and I'm sure one of them would love the chance to unite America.
Maybe Rudy inhaled too much debris at "ground zero!"
Please put Rudy on the ticket that way you have Mc War and Killuani on the same ticket starting wars with everyone from Iran to Pakistan not to mention that Rudy is such a moral role model for the GOP's evangelical base.
Ron Paul 08!!!
It doesn't matter who he picks, McCain is still gonna lose.
Democrat for McCain here
the same people that are considering a mcain/clinton ticket are the same ones who voted for bush twice, enough said.
Giulianos opinion is of little importance
Lieberman is a turn coat and how the people of his riding support him
is mystifying to me
I am not a MCSame supporter but his best choice would be Pawlenty
Romney is an arrogant elitist who could not relate to the hard times of americans if he wanted too and he has been a flip flopper too on social issues like a womans right to choose
