Mingling With The Women to Help Her Man
Can Judi Giuliani Help Soften Rudy's Image?
By Libby Copeland
Washington Post Staff Writer
Saturday, November 17, 2007; Page C01


Politics and Judi Giuliani have not always gone well together.

In recent months, as her husband's presidential campaign heated up, Giuliani was pilloried in the New York press as a social climber. A Vanity Fair profile accused her of demanding a separate seat on planes for her Louis Vuitton handbag. The former mayor's campaign started pulling her back from public events.

But as she proved yesterday during a women's fundraiser downtown, Judi Giuliani -- or "Mrs. G," as she called herself -- is most emphatically back.
"I look at these faces and they just energize me," she tells reporters. "I'm beginning to understand what my husband likes about politics."

She starts the event with a 10-minute speech mentioning husband Rudy's "tender heart." (She does look at her notes a lot. She does not, it must be noted, take a cellphone call from her husband in medias res.)

more if you want to puke....

1. They are getting all their excuses in line
when suddenly all the votes flip once again they will have establish the conventional wisdom as to how I guy who couldn't get re-elected at his old job could possibly get elected nationally.

:eyes:

It is amusing to watch the inside the beltway crowd try desperately to act like they have a clue as to what people outside the beltway think.

4. That paper's just pathetic
They jumped the shark YEARS ago- not long after Katherine Graham died as I recall. It's as worthless a rag as we have in America- not to be trusted or taken seriously.
