When he was mayor, every once and awhile Rudy would say something that would make you go, huh? He had one of those moments yesterday when he said in London, “I’m probably one of the four or five best known Americans in the world.”

Personally, I thought it was funny, but then again, I’m from New York. One of the risks Rudy runs–especially with Fred Thompson in the race–is that people in other parts of the country will see him as the arrogant New Yorker. Remember, after the last debate, one of the criticisms was that he talked about what he did in New York too much. Of course, it makes perfect sense that he would talk about what he did there, since that’s where he held political office–but coming from Giuliani it just rubs people the wrong way because it reinforces people’s pre-existing notions about New Yorkers.

I’d be curious to hear the full context of the quote, but either way, this is the type of statement Giuliani should avoid making in the future.
