Rudolph W. Giuliani was just five minutes into his speech criticizing President Obama's economic policies and hinting at a possible challenge in 2012 when he was interrupted by the shrill ringing of his cellphone. It was a sound that once before had tripped up the former New York mayor. During a 2007 speech to the National Rifle Assn., in the middle of his first run for president, he answered a call from his wife, sharpening the perception that he was clueless that his sometimes brusque and self-important manner could rub people the wrong way. Four years later, with the small waves of the Piscataqua River lapping the shore behind him, Giuliani pulled the phone from his pocket and glanced at the caller ID. "This is the president calling me, telling me that I'm wrong, but I'm going to wait to call him back a little later," he said to laughter, punching a button to silence the ringing.

Still flirting with another presidential run, Rudolph W. Giuliani is scheduled to make what an aide calls an "important trip" to New Hampshire aimed as much at convincing the former New York mayor to run as convincing the state's voters that he's the Republican with the best chance to win in 2012. A planned two-day visit beginning Thursday is designed to showcase Giuliani's potential strengths in the still-uncertain race for the GOP nomination. He is to meet with various Republican groups throughout the Granite State, and participate in discussions on healthcare reform, job creation and crime.

. -- Republican presidential hopeful Rudolph W. Giuliani was back campaigning Saturday, feeling well after what were described as flu-like symptoms had triggered an overnight hospital stay earlier in the week.

Despite his entirely modern personal history -- including two divorces and a messy extramarital scandal with the woman who became his third wife -- there is something old-fashioned about Rudolph W. Giuliani. He almost always campaigns in a suit and tie, even in informal settings. He wears rimless spectacles that he removes when he stands before cameras, and he carries a white handkerchief, folded into a perfect square, to dab his forehead when the lights get hot.

Outrage was the reaction on Wall Street last month when three top financial executives were handcuffed and led away--like hapless bank tellers in a garden-variety embezzlement--to be booked on insider-trading charges. It seemed an unnecessary humiliation for executives of Goldman, Sachs & Co. and Kidder, Peabody & Co.--an affront, even, to the dignity of Wall Street. Many were quick to lay the blame on Rudolph W.

It was a rare flash of the pugnacious Rudolph W. Giuliani whom New Yorkers love or loathe: In Miami's Little Havana, he recalled barring Cuban President Fidel Castro from a 50th-anniversary banquet for the United Nations. Why? "To make clear what I think of him -- what people should think of him," the former New York mayor told a roomful of elderly Cuban immigrants.

As his Republican rivals campaigned in snowy Michigan, Rudolph W.

No letup in the last hours After Iowa, change is in the air in New Hampshire. In the Democratic primary, Barack Obama's emphasis on change has suddenly made him the candidate to beat.
