The author examines the campaign of Republican presidential candidate Rudolph Giuliani, who has received upbeat media coverage. Many political reporters and pundits believed that Giuliani's weak performance was somewhat a strategy and that he never intended to win the early republican contest. His campaigns in the states Iowa and New Hampshire were considered. On the Web site of ABC News, Jake Tapper co-wrote a piece that accounted campaign expenditures of Giuliani in the early primaries.
