With whispers expressed through a bullhorn, Fred Thompson seems to be running for President. Undoubtedly this will energize the Republican base and certainly it will make it more difficult for Pelosi, Reid and the Defeat-o-crats to get the issue of the war solved. Unless there is a tidal shift on the left, the 2008 election will be up for grabs by either party.

If Gore gets in to save us from the GOP and the Clintons, it will be an interesting race, especially between two Southerners, two former Senators from Tennessee.
