[Music] Giuliani: There are many things I wish for this holiday season. 

I wish for peace with strength. 

Secure borders. 

A government that spends less than it takes in. 

Lower taxes for our businesses and families.  

And I really hope, that all of the presidential candidates can just get along. 

Santa Claus: Ho, ho, ho, ho.  I was with you right up until that last one.  Ho, ho, ho, ho, ho.

Giuliani: Canít have everything!  

Iím Rudy Giuliani and I approved this message.  

Merry Christmas!  Happy Holidays!

Notes: A number of campaigns put out Christmas-themed ads.  The Giuliani ad is most similar to the Clinton ad "Presents" in that it is clever and works in a bit of policy.  The Giuliani campaign also produced a 30-second web holiday video, "Same Gift," in a similar vein, featuring Giuliani in a red sweater next to Santa Claus:

Giuliani: With the primaries coming so early this year, I've got to tell you, I'm having a little trouble getting my holiday shopping done.

So I'll be working to get everyone the same gift:

A safe America, lower taxes, secure borders, job growth, fiscal discipline, strict constructionist judges and probably a fruit cake or something.

 (Santa Claus, not seen): A fruit cake?

Giuliani: What?  It'll be a really nice fruit cake with a big red bow on it or something like that.

Merry Christmas.  Happy Holidays.
