Rudolph Giuliani The New York Daily News and New York Times are reporting that the former mayor of New York City is expected to announce today that he is not running for the U.S. Senate in 2010, or governor or any other office -- and this might be the end of his ambitions as a political candidate. Giuliani, 65, became a national figure for the way he led New York and spoke to the world after the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. In 2007 he was a Republican presidential candidate. During his years of public service he's taken pro-choice and pro-gay stands. "I have always said that he was a good mayor -- just a terrible person," former Mayor Ed Koch told the Daily News. "And by terrible person, I mean he didn't respect anyone else's opinion. But he delivered essential services."
