"...After months of hints, and false starts, screen star and Republican ex-senator Fred Thompson Thursday launched his run for president, promising to stop "another Clinton" from seizing the White House.

"I feel deeply that I am doing it for the right reasons. I love my country and I am concerned about its future."

Go Join Friends of Fred and stop Billary '08! ;)
...I guess I have to change the name of the blog now.
