Giuliani's On The Spot Moment

Another question from someone at Young's restaurant and another tough moment for a frontrunning candidate.

Giuliani was asked why the turmoil in his private life didn't offer a contrast with his support for family values.

"I certainly haven't lived a perfect life," he acknowledged. "I am not running as the perfect candidate for president of the United States. I am running as a leader."

Not a perfect answer but a pretty good one given the pointedness of the question. Giuliani will still likely have to convince Republican primary voters that a twice-divorced man who has a somewhat tempestuous relationship with his son is the right person to lead the country.
