Giuliani for Obama

That's Caroline, Rudy's daughter. Dad must be so proud to have raised an open-minded daughter:
There's one vote that Rudy Giuliani definitely can't count on in his 2008 presidential bid: his own daughter's. According to the 17-year-old Caroline Giuliani's Facebook profile, she's supporting Barack Obama.
Or maybe not:
It's not news that Rudy and his two children, Caroline and her 21-year-old brother Andrew, have a rocky relationship. Caroline and Andrew are the children of Donna Hanover, Rudy's second wife. In March, Andrew, who is a junior at Duke, told the New York Times that he and his father had been estranged for some time, and he has spoken candidly about his objections to Giuliani's marriage to Judith Nathan. And after the wedding, the Times reported, Giuliani also stopped attending Caroline's high-school events. Though he went to her high-school graduation, he left without speaking to her and did not join in the post-graduation family celebration, according to the New York Daily News.
Why do Republicans reliable raise kids who hate them? Hmmm....

You just have to laugh at the field of GOP candidates, the "party of family values." All of them, save Romney, have had multiple wives all opting for "trophy wives" a full decade their junior. By contrast all of the Democratic front runners are in their first marriage. Don't get me wrong, breaking an oath taken before God shouldn't be held against any particular candidate but it just seems all too hypocritical to spout that they are God's party, the party of family values, and to ascribe the "moral majority" tag upon themselves when they can not even properly manage the most fundamental relationship in their own lives.
Caroline Giuliani has had a front row view of what kind of a man Rudy really is. And she didn't pick any of her fathers peers to support either. I think I trust her judgement.
