3. Moderates will vote for Thompson at least 2 to 1 over Hillary.
#3 is key.

Dream on, dream on
Dream yourself a dream come true
Dream on, dream on
Dream until your dream come true
Dream on, dream on, dream on...

Sing with me, sing for the years
Sing for the laughter and sing for the tears
Sing with me, if its just for today
Maybe tomorrow the good lord will take you away

1. can you name me a significant piece of legislation he's responsible for

2. can you give me a reason for him wanting to be president besides being camera-savvy?

3. can you give me a reason to vote for him other than him being a Republican?

4. can he get past the colorful, wide-ranging sex life that's going to surface if/when he becomes a serious candidate?

5. does he care?

the thing is, the big issue in the next election is going to be basic competence. after 8 years of wild incompetence, the American people are going to want a candidate who can govern.

Fred might be even lazier than Bush, and might care even less about the operations of government than Bush. if that's possible.

i'm sure he's amiable. i know he's good on camera. and he's got that swagger and southern drawl that so many Republican men find so appealing in a way that is not at all gay and doesn't in any way make them imagine the weight and heft of that huge pair he's got swinging down there.

but, sorry, he's still a Hail Mary candidate, which speaks volumes about the rest of the field.

Yeah, the more and more I look at the Rep canidates the more and more I realize why the Republicans are so scared. They either have canidate such as this, Republicans that are not really "Republicans", and those that divide the base or at least don't cater to the Christian right. So unless someone rallys the Christian right into voting for someone they really don't care for just to keep the Republican party(which I know many will not go to the polls just for that reason) then I don't see them having a shot.

1. True, he wasn't very proactive when it came to legislation. Luckily he'll be running against Hillary who has done little to distinguish herself as a Senator. (except vote for a war her party detests)

2-3. He'll announce, establish what he stands for, start debating and these things will come to light.

4. Maybe Bill Clinton will give his some advice.

5. He won't run if he doesn't care.

That is such a weak argument. Most Democratic members have criticized the "evidence" they were handed.

She's far too polarizing to scare anyone shitless. I'd be way more concerend about a Gore/Obama ticket.

Fine. But that doesn't detract from the fact that Hillary has done little as a Senator.

You say he appeals to a wide demographic of Republicans, yet you can say all this about him? That doesn't make me fell good about the state of my country's electorate.

I'm a Christian and so are a few of my friends. We'll all support Thompson if he gets the nomination.
