Dean Barnett is one of the few commentators who can actually make the elections interesting this far ahead of the event. He says that Fred Thompson has to get in the race now, but I wonder if he really knows what Thompson wants. Mabye Fred realizes that he doesn't have the experience to be president and what he has really been shooting for all along is the VP slot. He has proven that he can generate enthusiasm and that he can attack the Democrats effectively. I wasn't thrilled about Thompson as a president since his main qualification seemed to be gravitas, but as a VP, I think he would be awesome. And after a stint as VP, maybe he would be qualified to run for president.
