Ex-Girlfriend Endorsement -Now That's Saying A Lot!
"...Lorrie Morgan says her former boyfriend, Fred Thompson, would make a great president. Lorrie, who dated Fred for a couple of years in the mid-'90s, told Ralph Emery on his RFD-TV show "Live" that she definitely thinks Fred is presidential material.
"I always thought it," she said. "I used to beg him to run for president. I used to say, 'If you were in the White House, I would be so safe-feeling. I could go to sleep at night and know that everything was taken care of up there.'"
Lorrie said that even then Fred had presidential aspirations and that the two of them talked about a possible run.
"Fred is an extremely smart man, but yet when you talk to him you feel you're on his level," she said. "He would listen to what I had to say about him running, but Fred didn't really need my advice about anything. I think that Fred Thompson is one of the best people I've ever met in my life, honestly."
Lorrie said she blames herself for the end of the relationship. "It was very hard being politically correct for me all the time," she said. "I don't think it ever bothered Fred, but it bothered me." (source)
