…….Giuliani Praises Obama…..

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani says Barack Obama’s election will improve America’s image overseas, and will make the U.S. “an honest nation and not a hypocritical one.”

Giuliani, who sought the 2008 Republication presidential nomination and then supported Sen. John McCain in the general election, told Britain’s Sky News:

“Even those who voted against him, like me, say ‘We’re very thankful this has happened. This is the consolation prize. In having lost in terms of the ideology we wanted, or the person we wanted — John McCain — the benefit that we got was an America that can say to the world we’ve overcome the worst thing in our history.’

“If you look at America — which I believe is a great nation, a beautiful nation, a nation of altruistic goals and very often great altruistic accomplishments — one of the terrible marks against us is slavery and racism, and I think that’s a great thing for America to have overcome.

“And I believe that will gain us a tremendous amount in the world community. We can now be an honest nation and not a hypocritical one.”
