Hizzoner is getting close to throwing his hat in the ring:
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) said he is "absolutely" open to a run for president in 2012.
Giuliani, the mayor of New York during the 9/11 terrorist attacks who ran for president in 2008, hinted more strongly that he might seek the Republican nomination to challenge President Obama's reelection.
"I will take a look at 2012. It's really a question of, can I play a useful role? Would I have a chance of getting the nomination? Those are things that I'll have to evaluate as the year goes along," Giuliani said Thursday night on CNBC's "The Kudlow Report."
I'm going to guess that he won't go all in on Florida the second time around.
