New York Post: RUDY’S CALIFORNIA GOLD RUSH
Rudy Giuliani sounded like a GOP cheerleader yesterday in a keynote address to the California Republican convention.
In his first campaign swing since filing a statement of presidential candidacy early last week, Giuliani kicked off a five-day trip to California by talking for more than 25 minutes before making a reference to his presidential push.
“Presidents have to make decisions and move the country forward. That’s the type of president that I would like to be,” he told the party faithful.

He insisted his time as New York’s mayor made him the “best as you can be prepared to be president of the United States.”
He told the delegates “you get to decide” who will be the next president. “I wish you decide on me,” said Giuliani, who is in the Golden State to help the party raise funds.
