Unhappy with last week's elections which saw the Republican majority in the State Senate disappear, the State GOP is reportedly eager to be led by Rudy Giuliani. Insiders tell the Post's Albany bureau chief Fred Dicker that current GOP Chairman Joseph Mondello, "widely criticized as ineffective and out-of-touch, is being encouraged to step aside, and is expected to do so by the end of the year." Former State GOP Chairman William Powers said, "The party needs strong leadership, that's for sure." And that's the name of Giuliani's book! John Faso, who ran against Eliot Spitzer in 2006, said, "A lot of people are talking, saying we definitely need a change." And Giuliani is also being asked to run for governor in 2010, if can believe the other chatter.
