Description

(CNN) -- November 27 may be Turkey Day in America, but in the world of politics, every day is turkey day. Turkeys are foolish creatures -- overstuffed, noisy and self-important. A lot like the politicians on our list of Turkeys of the Year. Turkey No. 10: Rudy Giuliani puts all his eggs in one basket -- Florida. "We are going to win in Florida, and then we will be talking about exactly who made the right decisions," Giuliani says on CNN's "The Situation Room" a week before the primary. Giuliani ends up third in Florida, with 15 percent of the vote. The former New York City mayor was relying on the many former New Yorkers who have moved or retired to Florida. There's just one problem: most of them are Democrats, and Democrats can't vote in Florida's Republican primaries.
