What do you all think of Fred Thompson? He's already beating McCain in the polls and he hasn't announced a candidacy yet.

Congrats on Emory.  You were never a longshot in my book.  Unless you wanted to be a law sniper. ;)

I like that he at least has some attitude.  McCain, Rudy, Romney...they all seem so stale. 

Paul of course would be best.   :)

I think that says more about McCain than it does about Fred Thompson.  :D

Thompson is leading McCain precisely because he hasn't declared yet.  He hasn't had to speak on any issues.  He just rides the wave of popularity w/o having to address anything.  Once he officially enters, his numbers will balance out.

I think he is saying that the black community, while being largely democratic, might be more of the Leiberman type of Democrat...
