Fred Thompson for President?

Fred Thompson announced his candidacy for President on Jay Leno's program last night.  I was able to view the clips on AOL this morning. I was watching David Letterman last night instead of Leno.

Thompson used Schwartzenegger's guide to make his announcement on an entertainment program rather than a so-called news conference. Ho-hum.

But watching his casual attitude and off hand way of breaking the news did nothing for me by way of inspiring my support. (Well, I am a Hillary supporter anyway.) He made it sound like he'd be running the country from his kitchen table.

Whereas I once could have considered him a viable candidate, I no longer can.

Oh well.  That's politics.

I'm still considering my vote for the primary.  Right now I'm leaning toward Richardson of New Mexico because I know Dennis Kucinich doesn't stand a chance.  I may, at the last minute though, throw my vote to Dennis and then support the winner, whoever that may be.
