Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani likes Rick Santorum on foreign policy and the economy but is opposed to his approach on social issues. Appearing Friday on CNN, Giuliani gave Santorum a tepid endorsement. ?I like Rick's approach to foreign policy. I like Rick's approach to the economy. We have big differences on social issues. That's why I'm a moderate Republican. That's why I couldn't get nominated, if I ran,? Giuliani said. Santorum is considered the GOP presidential field's most vocal opponent of gay rights, while Giuliani has previously said he supports civil unions for gay and lesbian couples. ?I'm concerned about how do we get back the Northeast as a voting block, when we seem to be not modern enough on social issues.? ?I think biggest problem right now ? I think the gay rights issue is a more current one right one. And I think be

For all the hand-wringing over whether Nevada Republicans should have protected the state's vaunted early caucus, it's beginning to look as if early states are losing their outsize influence over who becomes the presidential nominee.It's still early, but it hasn't been the darlings of Iowa or New Hampshire that have risen to national prominence in the Republican presidential contest. Instead, the plethora of nationally televised debates have done more to shape the dynamics of the 2012 campaign ? boosting the aggressively savvy candidates to front-runner status and all but ending the chances of others to become president.

The Davids. Sometimes it seems like the only Obama representatives on the Sunday shows are political operatives David Axelrod and David Plouffe. They are both very good at running a sophisticated, national campaign. But they are not policy experts or cabinet secretaries or particularly good on TV. I'd rather hear about jobs from former labor secretary Robert Reich, who has national standing and doesn't get sucked into the political muck of polling, positioning, swing states, etc. By contrast, can you even name Obama's secretary of labor? Google says it's Hilda Solis.
