Fred Thompson? Don't wake me up till October

Not a pretty sight

This endless campaign has me really stumped. As a long term expatriate I feel completely lost. Fred Thompson, who I seem to remember seeing on TV in a Lawyer thing, dubbed into Spanish, playing in the background in a friend's house one evening while we waited for the wives to powder their noses before we all went out to dinner, is now the leading Republican candidate for the person who gets to solve the Iraq mess.

What a weird country! The only two people that might actually make reasonably good presidents, Al Gore and Michael Bloomberg, are on everyone's lips, but officially aren't running... I think I'm gonna do a Rip Van Winkle on this story till about October... Maybe when I "wake up" it will make some sense. DS

National Poll: Thompson 28% Giuliani 27% - Rasmussen
There’s change at the top in the race for the Republican Presidential nomination. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson earning support from 28% of Likely Republican Primary Voters. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani attracts support from 27%. While Thompson’s one-point edge is statistically insignificant, it is the first time all year that anybody but Giuliani has been on top in Rasmussen Reports polling. A week ago, Thompson and Giuliani were tied at 24%. READ IT ALL
