Worse than we knew:

The fact is that people inside the Giuliani campaign are appalled at the number of times their candidate has felt compelled to interrupt public appearances to take calls from his wife. The estimate from those in a position to know is that he has taken such calls more than 40 times in the middle of speeches, conferences and presentations to large donors. "If it's a stunt, it's not one coming from him," says one Giuliani staffer. "It's an ongoing problem that he won't take advice on."

That's just what we need, isn't it? Another president with ongoing problems he won't take advice on. As Mark Shea notes:

Boy, I sure am glad that a sane normal person like Giuliani is representing the Mainstream of the GOP and not a contemptible nut like Ron Paul.

Ahem.
