A Giuliani's Support
Goes to - Obama
You might think the media are devoting WAY too much attention to the spouses of presidential candidates.
But that was yesterday. Now we've moved on to the kids--in particular, 17-year-old Caroline Giuliani.
She's not supporting her dad. She's backing...Barack Obama.
Slate discovered this morsel of information by gaining access to the teenager's Facebook page. And there it is, along with the 207 photos of Caroline: She was a member of the group "Barack Obama (One Million Strong for Barack)." Until 6:00 this morning, that is, when she left the group after receiving an inquiry from Slate. (Quitting, too, leaves an electronic trail.)
Facebook pages are supposed to be private, but as Miss New Jersey learned after the racy photos from her page leaked out, it's all too easy in this digital age for anything you post to become public.
We already knew that Caroline and her 21-year-old brother Andrew were estranged from their father, in part because of tensions with his third wife, Judith, who helped bust up his marriage to the children's mother, Donna Hanover. That was already an uncomfortable situation for the former New York mayor. But to have his own daughter backing a DEMOCRATIC candidate, well, what if that pops up at the next debate?
For the record, Caroline Giuliani says she joined Facebook for "friendship," "random play" and "whatever I can get." What she's now gotten is some presumably unwanted attention.
