Thoughts on Rudy Giuliani

Today, Rudy Giuliani announced he will not seek elected office in 2010. There had been talk he would make a run for the U.S. Senate or the Governor's Mansion.

With regard to the latter he threw his support behind Rick Lazio. Of course, when Giuliani withdrew from the 2000 U.S. Senate race against Hillary Clinton due to prostate cancer it was Lazio who became the GOP standard bearer.

Giuliani said, “My life is interesting. It’s not as if I’m looking for something interesting to do.”

It sounds to me like Giuliani is content to watch the Yankees. He is no more interested in trekking to Albany or becoming the lowest ranking member of the U.S Senate than he was in traversing Iowa and New Hampshire in 2008. If you want to attain higher office there are certain things you must do and at this stage of his life Giuliani isn't prepared to do them.
