"fashioning a legacy", oh brother, he'll have a legacy all right, right along with Jimmy Carter. In teh beginning I thought he'd be one of the best presidents, now I realize he will be one of the worst. Gingrich was right, Bush is the GOP's Carter and that is some sick company.

The Boomlet Continues... At the moment, I'm reading "Team of Rivals" by Doris Kearns Goodwin, a book I was given as a gift and lost track of in the first year of being a dad. I've picked it up again and am amazed......

Good point Dale. The Dems this round are stuck choosing between Comrade Clinton, Osama Obama, and the Silky Pony. And we think *we* have problems!

Joe Helgerson Said: 10:58 pm It's pathetically obvious, from the tone and content of your post, that not only are you scared witless of Fred Thompson running for the GOP, but that you realize that the absolutely imbecilic collection of clowns, currently running for your LEFTIST party, basically have got NOTHING! Hilarious....

Nice article Rick and I do enjoy reading all of your articles. Our hopes are always to have a candidate that meets all of our expectations. Each of us measures that differently. Personally, I became familiar with Fred Thompson via Watergate hearings and Meet the Press type shows and of course the Paul Harvey substitute position which he fills. Although I have seen him in a few movies, I guess seeing him on Law and Order a few times brought back my visual identification of him. Obviously Fred will not meet everyone's expectations. Listening to his speeches and reading his articles he appears to be the best choice by far for me. I hope he remains spontaneous and articulate as he runs in this race. Good-Luck to Fred and his Team.

ole freddie, the great white hope for the gop.When asked on fox news what he'd do about Iraq he said the same thing George Bush is doing,whoa freddie, you just lost 60% of the country. Everyone thinks he's the savior, lets see him on the stump for about 6 months straight.The gop primaries will be total combat, and the dems will be taking notes for their attack ads in the general. So the party without a rudder is going for a tv actor-wow.This should be interesting.

While I can't speak for others, there is no way I vote for a pro abortionist. Thompson is pro life, pro gun, anti global warming, and anti illegal amnesty. I have already purchased my Thompson for President bumper sticker.

Rick: you and I disagree on a lot of issues on your Blog; that's okay, because it is "Your" blog after all. Mainly, I think it's because you consider yourself a "Conservative Republican", and because I consider myself an "Independent" (because I am a registered independent, and I vote that way, both for Democratic and Republican candidates). I categorically refuse to tie myself to any one "party", plank, ideology, etc. I think it's self-destructive, and you have to tie yourself into all kinds of mental pretzels, for example to explain why for example, you are "Pro-Life", but support the Death Penalty; and conversely, why you have to explain why you are "Pro-Choice", but against the Death Penalty! I don't have that problem, because instead of tying myself to any one ideological platform, I sit down, and say, "hey, what makes SENSE"! Thus for example, I do believe, personally, that abortion, in some instances should be allowed (rape, incest, sexual assaulty, health of the mother; terminal health defects, etc.). What I also believe, is that it should NOT be a form of "birth control" for lazy assed people, who refuse to wear a condom or take a pill, or for the mondern day slutty teenagers who are taught by their Leftist parents that it's okay to have sex with any guy who buys them a 50 cent Coke! Additionally, I firmly support the Death Penalty, for a variety of reasons, but I also realize the inherent corruptibilty, and unfairness of the US Justice system, in applying the dealth penalty fairly, and consistantly, etc., and I have a bunch solutions for those problems, which I don't feel like discussing at this time. Regardless, this isn't the reason for my comment. It's just background predicated on your post above. As a registered independent, I'm scared witless, that there literally will be no Viable, decent candidate, from either party, to vote for, in 2008! Certainly, I will NEVER vote for any single Leftist (I no longer refer to "Democrats" as "Democrats"; they're gone from the political landscape, except for maybe Joe Lieberman; thus, the so-called "Democrats" today, are in fact, "LEFTISTS", and deserve to be called as such"); even as a political "Independent", I am, above all else an Unabashed, dyed-in-the-wool AMERICAN! Hence, I choose "my" candidate for President, on what they will do for AMERICA! Thus, I can NEVER vote for any of the current Leftists running, because every single one of them, is only currently concerned, in doing what is absolutely best for Mexico, or China, or even worse, the Jihadis! So, they're all out! As for the so-called "Republicans"; some are too "conservative" for me; and others are just plain wacko (John McCain, Ron Paul); and don't stand a snowball's chance in hell! That leaves the possibility of Rudy only; and the object of your post, Fred Thompson! Give me Fred Thompson in a Landslide! Right now, I see only him, and second choice Rudy, as the only real chance for American to escape the clutches of the Anti-American/Pro-Jihadi Leftists, and the stupidity, incompetence and greediness of the so-called "Republicans". Yes, it will get interesting, but frankly, as a country, we NEED Fred Thompson, and NOW! Otherwise, we're in serious trouble...

Fred also courted another important demographic - old folks who vote. He sat in for Paul Harvey on the radio for several weeks to reach them.
