It's back:

WASHINGTON - Rudolph Giuliani said Wednesday that he plans to return to politics but that it is too early to say if that will be for the 2008 presidential campaign.

"I think I'll return to politics," Giuliani said in a speech to business leaders.

Called "America's Mayor," after his performance in leading New York City after the Sept. 11 attacks, Giuliani has spent the years since working as a corporate executive and public speaker.

Love that construction. "Called 'America's Mayor'..." Yes, by who? I mean, who exactly was it that started calling him America's Mayor?

...answering my own question, it appears that Peter Jennings was likely the first, on 9/17/01, followed by an introduction at a prayer service in Yankee Stadium on 9/23. Certainly there could've been something previous, but according to a nexis search of transcripts, Jennings gets the credit.
