The scoop from Washington

Sweet NH GOP debate blog special. Report 5. Giuliani on his private life


WASHINGTON--Does this line take it off the table for you? Rudy Giuliani just got a question dealing with his private life (divorces, affair, kids won't talk to him, etc.)

"Any issues in my private life do not effect my public performance."


"If you can't run your own house, then you can't run the White House." - Michelle Obama

It's amazing how many candidates have assumed she meant them. Or maybe not so amazing. If the shoe fits....

I find it interesting that a presidents private life is of no consequence when that life is owned by a GOP candidate. Rightly or wrongly the world judges us and forms opinions of us based on our actions, both public and private. For me, it speaks volumes when a candidates own children will not even talk to him. What does that tell YOU about this candidates ability to interact with others? Rudy Guilianni is a bully. Always has been, always will be.
