With whispers expressed through a bullhorn, Fred Thompson seems to be running for President. Undoubtedly this will energize the Republican base and certainly it will make it more difficult for Pelosi, Reid and the Defeat-o-crats to get the issue of the war solved. Unless there is a tidal shift on the left, the 2008 election will be up for grabs by either party.

But, and there is always a "but," but there is yet another "known unknown," to use a Rumsfelding term, for the progressive political side and it is Al Gore. If Gore gets in to save us from the GOP and the Clintons, it will be an interesting race, especially between two Southerners, two former Senators from Tennessee.

I've been saying for months that Thompson will end up the GOP nominee. I don't think Gore will get in the race though.

"Defeat-o-crats" ???

After six years of George W. Bush and his GOP rubber-stamp Congress misleading the U.S. into ignominious and incompetent continuing losses in Iraq, the Republicans have NO excuses whatsoever on pinning any blame onto the Democrats. Almost every Republican Congressperson voted FOR this war -- a slight majority of the Democrats voted against it back in 2002.

The defeat in Iraq is the direct result of it being the wrong war in the wrong place at the wrong time. The military did quite well but the Republican civilian leadership lost the war bigtime.

Repub-o-losers is more like it!
