Giuliani predicted a Clinton-Obama ticket Tuesday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - The presidential nominations for each party won’t be determined for at least another six months, but former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is already predicting which candidates will ultimately compose the Democratic ticket: Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama - in that order.
Giuliani told the Daily Telegraph, a London newspaper, on Tuesday that he thinks Clinton will win the nomination and choose Obama as her running-mate because he "has had such a good showing and it's going to be very hard for her to deny him a place on the ticket."
Giuliani, who holds moderate stances on hot-button social issues such as abortion rights and gun control, also told the Telegraph he is the only GOP candidate who can beat Clinton in the general election.
"If you want to defeat Hillary Clinton, I would be the best person to do that because I can make this campaign nationwide," he said. "We can build it to have a chance of winning in New York and in New England and in California and Oregon – these are states where Republicans haven't even had a campaign for a long time."
Giuliani made the comments while campaigning in Iowa Tuesday.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a potential GOP presidential candidate, also predicted a Clinton-Obama ticket last week.
