President Thompson?

I got an email this afternoon from Bill Frist (as I’ve no doubt a few million others did) I found rather interesting.

Fred Thompson Should Run For President

I believe Fred Thompson should run for President.

I’ve not talked with Fred personally about a potential run, so I am basing my thoughts simply on knowing him well, having worked with him in policy and politics everyday for 8 years, and knowing the people across America want a genuine leader who represents them.

Fred understands real people and they understand him. He understands the legislative process and has a strong bipartisan appeal, though he is a real conservative.

He has the experience of government service with a real appreciation for all three branches of government. He is a commonsense leader.

This past weekend Fred sat down with Chris Wallace of Fox News to discuss a potential run. I encourage you to watch the videos from this interview which I have posted on my blog.

What are your thoughts? Lets start a discussion on my blog about Fred running. I encourage you to leave a comment on this blog post.
