    Giuliani is Trump’s campaign consigliere
    By David K. Li
    February 22, 2016 | 9:48am

    Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani is part of Donald Trump’s kitchen cabinet, giving campaign advice to the GOP front-runner, whom he described as a “close personal friend.”
    Giuliani hasn’t endorsed any candidate yet in the 2016 race, but said he’s counseled Trump several times in the past month.
    “We’ve been talking. Donald and me, Donald and a few other friends who know politics,” Giuliani told the Washington Post.
    “He calls to check things out or I’ll call him to say, ‘Donald, you’re going too far’ or ‘What you said was great’ or maybe ‘Change it a bit.’ It’s nothing formal. It’s kind of a running conversation.”
    Traditional candidates have a team of advisers and political operatives, but Trump’s run to the top of the GOP food chain has appeared to be a one-man show.
    “There is candor and there is trust,” Giuliani said of his relationship with Trump.
    Giuliani said Trump leans on advisers and is more open to suggestions than the real estate maverick lets on.
    “He is calling a lot of people, listening but doing what he thinks he needs to do,” Giuliani said. “He listens respectfully, says he’ll consider whatever it is you send him. Sometimes he uses what we send him, sometime he doesn’t.”

    Trump, who finished second in Iowa before scoring decisive victories in New Hampshire and South Carolina, still appears to be persona non grata with mainline Republican leadership.
    But two-term mayor Giuliani said heavyweight Republicans are quietly keeping in back-channel touch with Trump.
    Giuliani declined to out those Republicans: “I could easily list off some names for you, but that’s for Donald to say.”
    Trump confirmed in an email to the Washington Post on Sunday night that he’s leaned on Rudy for advice.
    “Rudy is a very knowledgeable friend. I consider his counsel very important,” Trump wrote.

    trump needs to pick a cardboard cut-out of a human being
    he doesn't need someone who has any level fame or notoriety or whatever
    trump is the show
    he doesn't need a sidekick

    Trump needs to pick someone from the private sector that knows how this all works.

    His main message is that he'll "put the best & brightest on his cabinet". If he puts some retard on the ticket he fails at that.

    I'd be surprised if it was Guiliani, while he has political experience it was as a mayor, Trump needs someone on the ticket with a defense background, Kasich would be a good choice.

    Guiliani as US attorney general maybe??

    Colonel Alan West would be a great choice on many levels. He would add the military credibility and experience for security and helping the veterans, and would line him up for the next presidency. There might be another advantage also but I'll just leave it at that.

    There is actually something in the constitution against that. When bush/Cheney got "elected" cheney immediately had to start pretending he was from Wyoming and not Texas.

    This is the whole reason why Kasich originally jumped into the race to eventually be the VP candidate. Ohio is the swing state that R needs. I don't personally think Kasick is any good, but this when you have an attention whore that wants to grow his reputation and seem presidential enough for a VP pick.

    That would be awesome. In fact arnie was quite positive about trump recently, said he admired his business record, but said he needed to refine his message a bit . Least he didn't sell out to all his hollyweird luvvie pals and mock him or condemn him.

    I do believe trump will pick someone that will make the medias eyes pop out. It won't be palin I tell you that, trump isn't that stupid. He just needed her for the god botherers {though quite why they still love her ,with her family made up of woman beaters and girls who can't keep their legs closed I have no clue, but apparently they do so trump had to get her on board for iowa,he's probably keeping her locked down somewhere to be rolled out again if needed. }.

    If you believe any of the drivvel of glenn cry baby beck, trump is up to his ears with the mob as well, so maybe the mob will be running the US , after the election. ? Can't see it being any worse as it will just mean one mob takes over from the other. Obama had his shady connections, and we all know about the bush and clinton crime families.
