Watch out Republican presidential candidates, Fred Thompson is entering the race next week! I believe the support out there for Fred is real and its grassroots and this could be the campaign that helps realign the GOP and bring us back to the majority. Every candidate in the race right now appeals to only segments of the GOP--Rudy to the law & order cons, Mitt to the BizCons, Huckabee to the SoCons, and McCain to the RINOs. Fred has a little bit of all of these guys, and he has a vision of a federalist America based on true limited government.
I couldn't be more excited about this, and I'm not worried about the wait. Though he is not an announced candidate yet, Thompson has basically been in the national spotlight for months now and has shown incredible poll strength. What that tells me is that despite the other candidates racking up endorsements, the people themselves believe that Thompson is the best candidate.
While I'm at it, I would like to start a Draft J.C. Watts for Vice-President movement while we are at it.
