    Love the liberal hacks on this board who always jump and down claiming the next big Giuliani scandal is right around the corner.

    So far this is what you have come up with:

    1) attacking Giuliani because he is a catholic

    2) attacking him because he has been married more than once

    3) attacking him because his daughter allegedly likes Obama

    4) attacking him for his handling of the World Trade Center attacks when the rest of the country praised him for his handling of the tragic event

    5) attacking him because his wife allegedly is a "golddigger"

    Well folks, hate to break it to you but this simply will not get the job done.

    Giuliani is leading the pack already and once tired ole Freddy throws in the towel there will be a ground swell of support among ALL Republican voters because NO Republicans (except for Patsy's mom from that bastion of Republican values known as NEW YORK) want to lose to Hillary Clinton.

    Giuliani will win because he is a leader and people know what they're getting with him. People have NO clue what they would get with the shamelessly opportunistic (and patholgical of course) Hillary.

    Why do we keep having these polls? It's at least four months before the first primary. Most people have no idea who they're going to vote for.
