We Will Fight To Restore Our Party...Even If It Means a Draft.

The DNC Mulls Thompson '08

Already issuing pre-emptive statements --The first concrete sign the DNC is getting nervous about all the "Draft Thompson" talk?:

"On Monday, as speculation intensified over a possible Thompson bid for the Republican presidential nomination, the Tennessee Democratic Party issued a press release saying Thompson is no longer a registered voter in the state.

Thompson, of course, would have no problem re-establishing himself as a resident of Tennessee - which would presumably be preferable over the Washington area in a presidential bid. He was a U.S. senator from Tennessee 1995-2003, grew up in Lawrenceburg, graduated from then-Memphis State University, earned his law degree at Vanderbilt University and practiced law in Nashville for decades." (source)

There are many left-of-center voters that would pull the lever for Thompson and I think that realization just made its way into the DNC headquarters...

The simple fact is, this is all the dirt they have on FDT. That alone is why they are scared. There is no way to run him into the ground as they do everybody else. FDT is solid as a rock.
