New York City

Is Rudolph Giuliani’s daughter a Barack Obama supporter? That’s what her profile on the social-networking Web site Facebook.com seems—or seemed—to suggest. Slate.com reported this week that the profile of Caroline Giuliani, the 17-year-old daughter of the Republican presidential front-runner, describes her politics as “liberal” and notes her membership in a online group of Barack Obama supporters. After Slate’s story appeared, Caroline quit the group and took down the profile. A spokeswoman for Caroline, who will enter Harvard in the fall, said the profile “was not intended as a statement of support in a presidential campaign.” Her father, who divorced Caroline’s mother and has had strained relations with her and her older brother, asked that his children’s privacy be respected.
