Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani insists he doesn't want to be a vice-presidential pick on a GOP ticket in 2012, suggesting that Vice President Joe Biden looked like a puppet during President Obama's jobs speech.
In an interview with NBC New York Friday, the one-time Republican presidential candidate said the no. 2 job is not for him.
"I think Biden must have a sore neck by now," Giuliani said. "He was shaking his head so much it looked like he was on a string. It would be hard to sit there and shake your head all the time."
Biden has also had harsh things to say about Giuliani. During a Democratic presidential debate in 2007, when Biden was a candidate, he said Giuliani is "the most underqualified man since George W. Bush to seek the presidency."
"There's only three things he mentions in a sentence: a noun, a verb and 9/11," Biden said.
When pressed by NBC New York on Friday about reports that he would consider joining a Rick Perry ticket, Giuliani said he is not.
"I'm not considering the no. 2 spot," he said. "That's not something that I feel real comfortable with."
Giuliani left office at the end of 2001 after gaining a national reputation for his leadership of New York City during the 9/11 terror attack.
He ran for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008, but his campaign flamed out after he staked everything on winning the Florida primary.
