Astute Assessment of Fred thompson's Chances

..by William Rusher:

The battle for the Republican presidential nomination underwent a major transformation last weekend when Fred Thompson told Chris Wallace of the Fox News Channel that he is considering entering the race. This is no minor development. Bob Beckel, Clinton's longtime press secretary and now a Democratic commentator for Fox, promptly asserted that Thompson is the only possible Republican contender "who scares me," and he is right to worry.

Thompson first attracted national notice as the Republican minority counsel in Congress's investigation of the Watergate scandal.

Television viewers liked the imperturbable figure they saw, and parts in various Hollywood movies came Thompson's way. Then, in 1994, Thompson was elected to the U.S. Senate in a landslide to fill the remainder of Al Gore's term, which Gore had vacated on his election as vice president in 1992. Thompson was elected to a full term in 1996, and served as chairman of the Senate's Governmental Affairs Committee.

I LOVE Fred Thompson. I need to blog about this too....the more the word gets out there, the better. I think that if he runs, the grassroots will come out of the wordwork, and I predict even moreso than for W in '04. The true Conservatives understand what's at stake, and we're just chomping at the bit for someone to come through for us. And I think FT is it.

As soon as his campaign is up and running, I'm sending money. Nicely done myra!

Myra, remember when GW was Gov and the rumblings started quietly about him? I can remember to the DAY when I first "heard" about W, and it's the same for FT. I bet Mitt Romney is kicking himself in the rear for "coming out" so early. I just hope McCain goes by the wayside, but I doubt it; he's obsessed with the Presidency.
