  3. Fred Thompson is the savior of American politics. A corporate, pro-choice lobbyist is EXACTLY what the country needs to set the country back on track.

  4. I think it has. But then again, I’m skeptical about his overall chances, too.

  5. Count me among those that are not skeptical of Thompson’s chances. I don’t see a clear alternative. I do not believe that Giuliani is going to get the nomination. McCain and Romney positioned themselves poorly as the establishment guy (and Bush’s man) and the religious conservative respectively. Huckabee, Brownback, and the others have made no traction.

    So I’ll ask you: if you don’t think it’ll be Thompson, who do you think it’ll be? Are you more sold on the possibility of Giuliani winning the nomination than I am? If there were a Bob Dole or John Kerry it’s-my-turn candidate, I’d be more skeptical of Thompson’s chances.

  6. Uncharacteristically, I agree, and not just because all the right people detest Giuliani and so draw me to him. On the other hand, “none of the above” worked well for the Democrats in the last Congressional election, so …

  7. That’s not Aqua Velva or English Leather you smell. It’s the gin coming out of his pores through the flop sweat.

    Don’t expect Chris Matthews to notice. His political jock sniffing has been off base for decades.

  8. It’s nice to see the insults fly.

    The problem with analyzing fundraising at this point is we are a long way away from the election and there may be some fatigue involved. A single month of low receipts should not be judged. I’m not saying Thompson will get support later but a bad month can happen and campaigns can recover momentum.

    It seems silly for the pundits to play madame gypsy. They want to spend all their time predicting rather than analyzing and reporting. A fool’s pursuit.

    The race is a long one so many more ups and downs can be expected.
