He’s pro-choice. He’s close to John McCain. And now Rudy Giuliani’s former spokeswoman, Maria Comella, sends word that she is joing the McCain campaign where she “will be serving as the press secretary to the eventual Vice Presidential nominee.”
I can’t really see McCain-Giuliani happening, because Giuliani has never seemed to be in the VP mix. And though I like Rudy and thought he would have made a good president, I don’t think he’d be well suited for the second slot, and always thought that if either McCain or Giuliani were the nominee, they’d have to select a VP who would satisfy conservatives.
But McCain and Giuliani do get along well, and Giuliani’s endorsement right after Florida helped seal the deal for McCain. It would certainly double down on the experience and national security themes, and Giuliani is well-versed in talking about economic issues.
If I were a betting man, I’d be betting against this. But hey, it’s McCain we’re talking about here. Anything can happen.
UPDATE: Rudy will be in Denver next week to offer reaction on the Democratic convention.
