FRED DALTON THOMPSON
FoxNews just announced (no link yet) that former Senator Fred Thompson is considering a run for the White House in 2008. I've always liked this man and thought he had the star power to make a successful run for president. Reagan had some star power as well. If Thompson decides to make a go of it, there will be two "real" conservatives in the race. The other being Newt. However, Newt hasn't announced but you know it's only a matter of time before he does.
Adding Thompson to the mix is good news for conservatives, and bad news for McCain and Rudy. McCain, in my opinion, is finished. If you officially announce your intentions to run for president and have to apologize the next day, well, you've pretty much screwed the pooch. You're history. Rudy's a player and will still be standing in the late rounds, and he's an attractive VP. No matter what your views are on Thompson, I think the presidential race on the republican side just got a little more interesting. From NewsMax:
"Many activists said they hoped another conservative would get in the race -- perhaps Newt Gingrich, the former House speaker, or Fred Thompson, the former actor turned senator turned actor again."
Here's a couple ads by Thompson with his views on our president and troop support.
