When Hollywood supports a Democratic candidate, they say the candidate is being helped by the far left wing of the party. What happens when Hollywood sends one of their own to the campaign trail? Actor/former Senator Fred Thompson is testing the waters to run for president because “there isn’t enough star power” running for the GOP nomination.
I remember when Orrin Hatch, Elizabeth Dole, Alan Keyes, Gary Bauer and George W. Bush were running for president in 2000. It seemed like a pretty lame class. Then McCain got in and then it was sort of interesting, but look at who we got.
Update: Per America Blog, Apparently James Dobson says, “Thompson is not a Christian.” So maybe he’s no Ronald Reagan.
