A link about the denouement of TThompson for President garners as much attention as the run did.
Thanks for commenting. Zero comments was making me feel sorry for Tommy. No one cares! At least he lasted longer than Russ. What does it take to get a Wisconsin President.
I was torn -- the zero comment note was very appropriate, given how the campaign went. But I also felt sorry for him. He's a good candidate on paper. Midwestern Common Sense is long overdue in the White House.
i kinda lost interest in the guy after his term with the Bush administration...actually he seems like a decent sort of guy...just asked to do the un-askable.
hmmmm with your connections with ann coulter maybe we can get mccarthy back out of the grave....his combover looks a lot like rudy's so maybe the fact that he is dead will be overlooked by the rabid right.
You could run, Ann. You're just the kind of Democrat I'd love to support.
A decent man.As the late Leo Durocher stated,"Nice guys finish last."
Thompson is a lot like Mario Cuomo. He'd have been a strong candidate for President if he'd taken the plunge and run, in 1988, or in 1996 or even in 2000 (when he would have been a much better alternative for Republicans who didn't want Bush than the erratic John McCain.) But when the time was right, he hesitated.So this year, he finally decided that it was time, only to find that his moment had long since passed, once visible upon the surface of the great and broad river of history, but now buried deep by the eddies of time and swept on as history inexorably flows towards a future in which Tommy will no longer be more than a spectator.A sad epitaph indeed.
