Fred Thompson For President

From the Foxnews Interview today:

THOMPSON: I want to see how my colleagues who are on the campaign trail do now, what they say, what they emphasize, what they're addressing, and how successful they are in doing that, and whether or not they can carry the ball in next November, and mainly whether or not they can reach the American people, inspire the American people to do the tough things that we're going to need to do.
CHRIS WALLACE: And if you search your soul and if you listen to what they're all saying and it doesn't seem to you that they're catching on, making sense — whatever — then what?
THOMPSON: Well, I'm going to give it serious consideration.

That sounds like some political speak for... yes.

If Mr. Thompson were to run it would certainly shake the field up. There was talk on the Internets that Mr. Thompson wouldn't run because his buddy McCain was in the race already. Well, look at McCain's recent poll numbers. From the interview it looks like Fred Thompson is thinking that he has to step in and kick some butt.

I don't know if I am going to vote for him. But we haven't done too badly in the past with electing a conservative actor as president of the United States.
