(Newser) – He may be America's mayor, but to Caroline Giuliani he's just dad—and she's not having anything to do with the idea of him as president. In her Facebook profile, the soon-to-be Harvard freshman lists herself as politically liberal, and says she's is backing Barack Obama. At least she was until Slate got a look at her page and spread the news.

Caroline was listed as a member of the Facebook group "Barack Obama: One-Million Strong for Barack" until 6 a.m. today, after a Slate writer emailed her about it. It's no surprise that she and Rudy are not exactly close: After divorcing Caroline's mother and remarrying, Giuliani stopped going to his daughter's high school events, and didn't talk to her at her own graduation ceremony.
