Giuliani says to decide on White House run in 2006

SYDNEY (Reuters) - Former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani
said on Wednesday he would decide next year whether to run as a
Republican U.S. presidential candidate in 2008.

"I won't decide until next year," Giuliani told a business
conference in Sydney. "I can't make that decision yet, it's a
little premature to make it."

Giuliani, who joined a Texas-based law firm in March, went
from being a mob-busting federal prosecutor in New York to the
Republican mayor who guided the city through the 2001 attacks
on the World Trade Center.
