  1. So far, Clinton is the only Democratic Presidential candidate to host their web site on a Microsoft server
  2. Giuliani’s one redeeming quality — he’s one of only two Republican Presidential candidates to host their web site on a non-Microsoft server
  3. Must be because of all the time he’s spent in Massachusetts
