ABC News’ Jan Simmonds Reports:  Not even a week after launching his first television ad, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani, R-N.Y., today launched his second ad, entitled "Leadership."

The advertisement, to be aired in the Boston television market and in New Hampshire, again touts  Giuliani as not perfect, but someone who has a record of leadership experience which, in his opinion, is far greater anyone else who is running for president.

"They’re not going to find perfection, but they’re going to find somebody who has dealt with crisis almost on a regular basis and has had results," says Giuliani in the ad. "And in many cases, exceptional results. Results people thought weren’t possible."

Interestingly, while discussing how he has dealt and overcome crises, the former Mayor does not mention 9/11.  Recently on the trail, Giuliani has spoken very little about that tragic day in September, 2001, unless someone at a Town Hall has specifically asked about it. 

It is believed that Giuliani and his campaign have chosen to do this in an effort to show voters that he has accomplished more than just his handling of that tragedy. 

Additionally, Giuliani’s public persona on that day is already widely known by Americans but his times as United States Attorney and as the third ranking official in the Reagan Justice Department are not presently at the forefront of people’s minds.

Giuliani suggests that because he has been tested in all three executive positions during times of crisis, he is prepared to take on the challenges that the nation faces today.
