Rudy opts out of CNN/YouTube Debate
July 29, 2007 -- Ana Marie Cox, Time Magazine is reporting that ex-Dem. ex-Indeep. draft dodger Rudy Giuliani will skip out and also dodge the CNN/YouTube Debates - and so far only the Vietnam veterans Ron Paul and John McCain have agreed to withstand the barrage of questions
- maybe some silly - maybe some 'sanctuary city serious" -
from the citizenry.
And from a Washingtonpost.com 07.27.2007 article - link will not work - titled Giuliani AWOL in Cyberspace :
"Giuliani's the only candidate whose MySpace profile is set to private. ("Is there any special wisdom that he can claim for being the only one with a private profile?" quipped a Republican online political operative.) He's invisible on Facebook, where the profiles of Rep. Ron Paul, an online darling, and Romney, whose five sons are blogging it up online, have 14,000 and 12,000 supporters, respectively.
. . .
If you look at the campaigns that really do innovative, revolutionary things online, they are usually the underdog campaigns -- Ron Paul. When you're a frontrunner like Rudy, you don't want to take risks and make mistakes. Secondly, I've been to events where Rudy has spoken. He's very guarded. He's not the most accessible of candidates."
