And You Thought Fred Thompson Was Just Acting!

Doug Petch, one of my new buddies from BlogNashville and a graduate of the Database 101/201 CARR Boot Camp we conducted there May 5-6, says former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson is grooming a presidential run. Yes, I know it sounds far-fetched, but Doug is nobody's dummy and you can read his case here.

Concerning Thompson, his decision some years ago to leave the Senate and return to the acting world was a big disappointment, not because I thought he was a particularly effective Senator (he wasn't, in my view), but because, given the right circumstances on the national political scene and some political wisdom and courage on his part, he could become a powerful voice for the Right. Let's see what happens now.
