Rumors are flying that Alan Keyes and Fred Thompson might enter the 2008 race for President of the United States. I think the race to the White House would be ever so much more exciting if either one of these men joined the debate. If both of them step up, it would be wonderful. Many conservatives have not yet placed their bets on any one of the many candidates on the Republican side. It's way too early to limit out options.
More All Fred, All the time
From the Kansas City Star's blog: Buzz is building out there to push former Tennessee GOP Sen. Fred Thompson into the White House race.
And this: The lawyer, former politician, actor and radio personality, is a long shot. But he looks to me to be made of the right stuff - in the Ronald Reagan mold. If he tosses his hat in the ring, the right wing very possibly would run, not walk, to his corner.
And this: And if he runs, he could not only defeat anyone the Democrats nominate, including Hillary Clinton, but his coattails just might be long enough to bring the GOP back to power in Congress.
UPDATE: And this: Amid rumors that Senator Fred Thompson might make a run for the Presidency, he was on Mark Levin's radio show this evening discussing the Libby matter and Levin ended the call by asking him about the rumors.
He played it rather coy, simply saying, I'll have more to say about that a little bit down the road.
I don't know enough about his back story, but based upon what I do know, he's someone I could support. He's also someone I think would play very well to the electorate, potentially the closest thing to a Reagan I've seen around lately. Click here to listen.
