Giuliani and Wife Dump on Hillary
Posted on Oct 17, 2007
As if he’s already secured the nomination, Rudy Giuliani has begun to focus his vitriol on the other party’s presumptive nominee, Hillary Clinton: “I don’t know Hillary’s experience. She’s never run a city.” It’s been a long, long time since we’ve had an ex-mayor occupying the Oval Office. Maybe Giuliani is on to something here. There just has to be some parallel between being a mayor and the leader of the world’s only superpower.
Not to be left out, Giuliani’s wife, Judith, also threw in a little back of the hand: “I’m not a political person. And I have no desire to sit in on Cabinet meetings. And I promise you, I’m not going to morph into a politician.” And if my husband is elected president, I promise never to leave the first kitchen.
Giuliani, interviewed with his wife, offered thoughts on a variety of issues:
On Hillary Clinton’s experience: “I don’t know Hillary’s experience. She’s never run a city. She’s never run a state. She’s never run a business. She has never met a payroll. She has never been responsible for the safety and security of millions of people, much less even hundreds of people. So I’m trying to figure out where the experience is here.”
