The silence conerning FDT in the MSM is deafening! It will be a chore for any Republican this time around since the Libs are so frustrated from 2000 and 2004, and determined not to let 2008 slip out of Hillary's grasp, but my guess is that they fear Fred big time.

Add me to the list. As a conservative, I am profoundly unimpressed with the Republican candidates so far. I cannot enthusiastically support them. Fred Thompson I can wholeheartedly support. In fact, Thompson is the only candidate (or not-yet candidate) who can win the presidency from the left. Help us Fred, you're out only hope.
