You should read this George Will column.
I like Fred Thompson, and would vote for him with a smile and in a second if he were the nominee. But, but . . . prudence dictates that we take a hard look here, folks. George Will is no oracle, but he raises a lot of the same questions I've wondered about:
- One of four senators to endorse John McCain, and co-chair of McCain's 2000 campaign?
- Voted for McCain-Feingold?
- Howard Baker's protege?
