Looks like Fred is ready for a fight.
However, what is probably the most important part of this article comes in the last paragraph.
"Talking to a likely Thompson staffer ahead of the speech, I said I hoped he'd get in the race and shake things up. The staffer said, coyly, 'I think you'll get your wish.' I didn't push for a date and time. But this guy's ready to go for it."
Take that for what it is...but to me, that sounds like an affirmation that Fred Thompson WILL run for the GOP presidential nomination.
h/t to my fellow "Fred Thompsonite" Paul Cave for linking me to this article from The Free Republic.
