Giuliani, in the lead, Loop Lunch today

Mayor Giuliani, currently the frontrunner in the Republican Presidential primary, is in town today for what is billed as a private luncheon with America's Mayor in the Chicago Loop [only $2300 per person, cheap at twice the price which you could do if you wanted to pony up for the general election, too]. It appears that the Mayor will be parachuting in to the Union League Club of Chicago: speaking, picking up the cash and on his way. For once, Sneed seems to have had something first [See here ]

The latest Real Clear Politics averages have Rudy beating Hillary 48.8 to 44.5, but trailing slightly Illinois' favorite son candidate, Senator Obama, 43.5 to 44.3. [although, this was prior to Obama’s relatively poor performance, last week, in the South Carolina, eight candidate, Democratic Presidential Primary debate].

The latest RCP averages also have former Mayor Rudy Giuliani winning by 12.9 % over Senator McCain, by 21.7% over former Tennessee U. S. Senator and "Law and Order," star Fred Thompson [who has yet to enter the race] and by 23% over former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney]. See RCP averages.

In short, Rudy should be feeling OK. Perhaps he will tell the press or the attendees a bit more than that.
