Never understood for the life of me why New Yorkers liked Guilliani more than Pataki. Of course, I am one who rarely has much favorable to say about any Republican, but I do think Pataki wasn't a bad governor. He did create some jobs and is a man of decent character. I see little redeeming about Guilliani and his personal life of 2 divorces wouldn't help his possible senate bid against Gillibrand.

Pataki was governor for 3 terms and did well as so. Giuliani was probably the best thing that ever happened to NYC. Growing up there, in the 80's and not being allowed to ride the subway because it was too dangerous, or travel outside of main 'touristy' areas. Giuliani changed all that when he actually started enforcing the existing laws. If you went to 42nd street in 1992, and then again in 1996, you wouldn't even recognize it. He made entire sections of Brooklyn and Queens livable again by getting the perps out and into jail. He was an unbelievable success by ANY measure.

You make it out like the New York revitalization happen on Rudy's watch. I grew up in the city, and I saw building being revitalized back in the late 80s. He was not the savior. OH please. I would give him credit for cleaning up 42street. But, I love how conservatives hate big government but they accepted Rudy G pushing out businesses out of the city. Whether you think strip bars or peepshows are wrong, it's not up to Rudy G to remove them.

Lot of nervous Dems in NY now...it looks like Rudy will run for the senate and he will win. He is liked in NY. The Dems weren't planning on losing this seat....and if Rudy decides to run for it which I think he will, its his seat.

"Rudy Giuliani isn't going to run for governor in 2010, avoiding a potentially bruising election fight against Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, several sources said yesterday. And while he's left the door open to running for US Senate against Democrat Kirsten Gillibrand, many people close to him said they considered such a run unlikely, despite a report claiming he had made up his mind and would announce for that race within 48 hours:

He pushed out the garbage businesses that brought in crime and drugs and replaced them with much better businesses like Disney, Virgin Records, Nasdaq, etc. He isnt the reason for 100% of the revitalization, but he is responsible for a lot of it. His crime initiatives were mimicked across the country with similar results. Those crime reductions allowed whole sections of Brooklyn and Queens to be livable again reversing decades of decline in population and business tax revenues.
