Yes, I’m concerned that the hype will translate into a Fred flop and yes, I know he’s not perfect, but wowee am I excited that it looks like Fred Thompson will enter the race on the 4th of July. Anyone want to roadtrip to Tennessee right around then to watch him announce? Allah? Ace?

Since you bring it up, I’ve been wondering exactly what either of those guys, at least one of whom is pro-choice and at least one of whom is pro-gay marriage, needs with Fred, who is anti-both-those-things. Seems in A Tale of Two Hawks, Rudy should be fine with both of them. Is it just a question of backing the more popular hawk?
Guess I should be doing my wondering on one of their blogs, but I hate crowds. Getting back closer to on-topic … I’d love to go to Tennessee but alas my 3-yr-old has brought my spontaneous road-tripping to an end.
Thompson is so popular right now that I doubt he will live up to the expectations of him. Rudy is the best candidate concerning terrorism/Iraq/security, and these are the only issues that are defining the campaigns, so I bet the race will narrow down between him and Thompson. Romney is too similar to Thompson, but Romney has less name recognition.
