Rudy giuliani and judith nathan

Rudy giuliani and judith nathan, You gotta love kids. They are so honest. Andrew Giuliani, now a senior at Duke, spoke to a New York Times reporter the other day who was curious about his and his sister's absence from the campaign trail:

In a telephone interview yesterday, Andrew, a sophomore and member of the golf team at Duke University, acknowledged having had difficulties with Ms. Nathan, and said that he and his father had recently tried to reconcile after not speaking “for a decent amount of time.”

“There’s obviously a little problem that exists between me and his wife,” the younger Mr. Giuliani said. “And we’re trying to figure that out. But as of right now it’s not working as well as we would like.”

Does the thrice-married Giuliani think he's the teflon-man and all attacks on him will dissipate in honor of him being the 9/11 mayor? Surely, his 15 minutes of mayoral fame won't stretch that far.

More from Andrew, and then onto Caroline:

Andrew Giuliani said he would not participate in his father’s campaign, saying his devotion to becoming a professional golfer within three years allows no time for distraction.

While he would not say how long he had been estranged from his father, others close to the family said it appeared to have been for at least a year.

...Similarly, a distance appears to have developed between Mr. Giuliani and his daughter, now a high school senior who is to attend Harvard University in September.

Then there's Rudy the father, who apparently deserted his kids in spirit after his marriage to Nathan:

Mr. Giuliani once prided himself on attending all his children’s events and went to Andrew’s high school football games and Caroline’s plays. But he stopped at some point after his marriage to Ms. Nathan in 2003. He missed his son’s graduation, in 2005, and his daughter’s plays in the last 18 months, said people who attended those events.

Divorce is never fun for anyone, particularly kids. But, think about it. From the time Rudy met Judy, his life has been a whirlwind of high-flying, from building international security and investment companies, to public speaking, and traveling the globe (to get foreign affairs experience in case he wanted to move from Mayor to President in one fell swoop.) What time was left for his children?

Will he play Blame the Ex and claim Donna Hanover, his former wife, turned the children against him and did her best to make sure they didn't want him around?

The kids apparently turned out well -- Andrew is going to be a professional golfer and Caroline is about to enroll at Harvard. Surely during their teenage years they formed their own opinions of their father, separate and apart from those of their mother.

I think Rudy's arrogance knows no bounds. He thinks people will gloss over his three wives and inability to successfully integrate his children into his current domestic life. I think he's wrong.

Update: A good read is this Dec. 2006 Salon article about Rudy being an authoritarian narcissist.
