Rangel: Giuliani in 2008
November 20th, 2006

Congressman Charles Rangel showed his bipartisan spirit this morning by endorsing former New York City mayor Rudolph Giuliani for the 2008 Republican primary this morning in an appearance at Baruch College.

Rangel said he hopes Giuliani runs as the “country’s mayor”, because “people ought to know who he was when he was just the city’s mayor.”

The congressman wasn’t ready to endorse anyone in his own party, however. He said that Hillary Clinton would make a strong presidential candidate, that Barack Obama might be the right choice depending on the Democratic field, and that “I hope Kerry spares me. I really do.”

    Rangel wasn’t endorsing Giuliani. Rangel wants Giuliani to run so Rangel and others could attack “America’s Mayor’s New York City mayoralty with all its warts. Rangel was rubbing his hands in expectation of a fight not offering a handshake. Payback’s a bitch.
