ONE WOULD PREFER...:

RUDY RETURNS FROM ST. FLUEY (CARL CAMPANILE and TIM PERONE, December 21, 2007, NY Post)

In 2000, just before he was to face Hillary Rodham Clinton in a race for the US Senate, Giuliani announced he had prostate cancer and dropped out. As he underwent cancer treatment, he slowed down his pace - a bit.

Giuliani's latest illness comes amid an ailing week for the campaign.

His status as national front-runner has disappeared in several recent polls following negative stories about the indictment of his protégé, ex-NYPD Commissioner Bernard Kerik; his use as mayor of public funds for trysts with then-girlfriend Judith; his business dealings; and his spat with rival Mitt Romney over immigration.


...that he were man enough to announce that he's not running because he can't win.

Read somewhere that "flu-like symptoms" is a euphemism for drunk. Hadn't heard that he was a drinker, but whatever, wimping out on a false health issue makes it even more clear that he's not the guy we want in the White House.

Apparently the NYT has 'cleared' him on the 'charges' of bilking the city for his visits to the Hamptons to see Judith.
