Just Noting a Political Prediction

Momentary topic change from my enlightening tech commentary/blather. No need to get all bent out of shape on me. I'm neither a Demican nor Republicrat. I don't like either.

Saw this article today on Fred Thompson. I'd just like to note that I told my wife 8 years ago that I thought Fred Thompson would be U.S. President some day and she remembers. So before he declares he is running, I reiterate my prediction - if only so that I can say, "yeah I called that 10 years ago" if he wins. I don't like any of the candidates so far and find it appalling that the election is already in full swing. Not sure if I'll like Fred Thompson or vote for him, but sounds like he'll be a force to be reckoned with. I mean come on - how is Hillery going to compete with: "He plays President Ulysses S Grant in the film, Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, which opens next month."

I think it is safe to say that it will be good to have a change. But I say that after every election and then nothing changes - just different people blathering.

Quote that I agree with from the article:

"The president Americans want is, in fact, the guy they see on Law and Order: wise, thoughtful, deliberative, confident without the cockiness of George W Bush, urbane yet country. Fred Thompson communicates all those virtues."

I don't care what your politics are - I just think this is the truth.

And I don't care what anybody says, I liked Reagan.

For a while the character from West Wing was doing well in the polls last election. I think the voters just want a figurehead. Time to bust out the "Max Headroom in 2008" stickers.
