Seems like Thompson is going to run. What do you think? I need to hear his illegal immigration viewpoint. That is what finished McCain for me. I guess if Thompson plays it right, he can win the nomination. No one seems that thrilled with the current crop of contenders.

Actor Thompson quits show, eyes presidential run
By Richard Cowan
Hollywood actor Fred Thompson has tentatively decided to run for president, according to a long-time friend and political adviser, and has quit his role on the TV crime series "Law & Order."
"His (Thompson's) mind is made up to run if interest continues to be as intense as it is," Tom Ingram said in a telephone interview on Wednesday.
Thompson, who won election twice as a Republican senator from Tennessee, will now begin raising money to gauge support, added Ingram, who now serves as chief of staff to Sen. Lamar Alexander, also a Tennessee Republican.
