With all the criticism swirling around Mayor Bloomberg about the terror threat last week, former mayor Rudy Giuliani is defending Bloomberg. Guiliani, at a fundraiser for Staten Island's borough president, James Molinaro, said, "Mayor Bloomberg did exactly the right thing about putting the information out to the public, as did Commissioner Kelly. I think they have handled the whole situation about terrorism very well." Love him or hate him, Guiliani probably got it right when he said that Bloomberg would receive criticism if he kept the threat from the public.

Guy Molinari, the former Staten Island borough president, joked at the fundraiser that Guiliani is going to run for President in 2008, "I know what he's going to do. He told me, 'Guy, between you and me, I'm going to run.'" For his part, Guiliani said nothing on his status for '08.
