Quote of the day
"It takes a different skill set to campaign for President than to be President".
Fred Thompson is the only one that has that presidential skill set.
From Powerline " Fred Thompson addresses Social Security. He is an impressive and responsible candidate." Another brief but insightful quote: "Thompson: Fred did fine; I liked, for example, his refusal to demonize the oil companies. "
But, I agree with some other quotes on Powerline that points out Thompson doesn't campaign well. He doesn't have that fiery rhetoric that incites the crowds. And unfortunately that counts against him. It's not the message, it's the delivery? Make a good potential president a second tier candidate because he doesn't excite you?
I seem to remember a quote about a book and its cover.

I would add that if you know someone in S.C. call them now - Fred needs a big showing there or it is probably over.
