He might be a good choice! He's got some pretty good recognition too because of his Hollywood career as well.
If he doesn't have any bones in the old closet for the liberal media to dig up, he could be a good alternative.
Is he a fairly strong conservative, fiscally, and a believer in taking the fight against terror to the terrorists? How's his stand on unborn human life too?
Im starting to worry there are too many conservatives running. if the conservative vote is split too much in the nomination process McCain could win...
Here's an old article from USA Today that answers your question
Thanks for the article.
Sounds like an interesting candidate. He's not conservative to the extent of Barry Goldwater, but he could be great on anyone's ticket as a V.P..
I like the fact that he's pro-life, but he seemed to go with that lame campaign reform bill of McCain's.
He's sounds like he's lived a rather interesting life, and might be grilled on his dating life in the past, but then again, the Demo candidates usually are given a pass by the media, and maybe Thompson would not get hit too hard in that category.
He might make for a strong ticket. I could see him in the V.P. role. Maybe a McCain/Thompson Ticket, or a Rudy/Thompson Ticket......or Gengrich/Thompson? I think he'd enhance any of those possible combo's.
Maybe he would keep the Prez candidate from wandering into the liberal/moderate leaning area too much too.
Why not? Lord knows the Right could use a conservative infusion:
Anyone from "The Hunt for Red October" has my vote....oh wait Alec Baldwin was in that too.
More and more interesting:
Some interesting tidbits. Lots of links:
I hope he does run. I like him a lot (even though he's Republican). If Ahnuld can do it so can he. It's odd that most of the Republicans I do like are from Hollywood (Arnold/Thomson).
