Ahh, pandering to the voters, there's nothing like it

Republican presidential candidate Rudolph Giuliani, who some of you might remember as the former mayor of New York (you mean you didn't know that?), has declared that he is rooting for the Boston Red Sox in the World Series. So says this New York Post report.
"I'm rooting for the Red Sox," the Republican presidential contender said in response to a question, sparking applause at the Boston restaurant where he was picking up a local endorsement.
"I'm an American League fan, and I go with the American League team, maybe with the exception of the Mets," he said. "Maybe that would be the one time I wouldn't because I'm loyal to New York."
No word yet if former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney is rooting for the Red Sox or perhaps will decide to root for the Rockies to just be contrary.
Senator Hillary Clinton HAS NOT said that while growing up in Chicago she often dreamed of a World Series involving the Colorado Rockies.
