THE PLANK NOVEMBER 29, 2007

The Last Believer?

Bill Kristol publishes an email from a friend:

Read Fred's op-ed in today's Des Moines Register, 'Reclaim greatness: Lower taxes. Enforce laws.' It's excellent. Watch the Thompson campaign's new 2-minute web video, 'Revolution,' at http://fred08.com.
It's terrific. Think about the alternatives to Fred. Really ... does
the Republican party, a principled conservative party, at a time when
the nation's at war, want to nominate a moderate one-term governor
who's trying to buy the nomination, a temperamental liberal New York
City mayor, or a smooth-talking governor-preacher with no foreign
policy experience? If McCain can't make it, serious Republicans will
end up going with a grown-up, experienced, knowledgeable, and
consistent conservative - Fred. Watch for his numbers to move in
December.

I've read the op-ed, I've watched the video, and I agree that
Thompson's numbers will move in December. I just expect them  to move
in the same direction they've been moving ever since he entered the
race.
