Why Fred Thompson Is So Popular

The past two Presidents we've had, Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, have many differences, but they have at least one thing in common. They both love George H. W. Bush.

Seriously, they're both Baby Boomers. And they both have proven to be mediocre Presidents. Coincidence? I think not. But we may see that change very soon due to the potential entrance into the 2008 Presidential race of Fred Thompson.

Thompson may be older than Bush and Clinton, but that actually works in his favor because people are starting to get tired of Baby Boomers in positions of political power. With Clinton, we saw a President who could have done so much had it not been for his personal failings. With Bush, we see a President who...could have done so much had it not been for his personal failings. What people seem to be looking for is an adult, someone with the maturity and sense that comes with age.

Enter Fred Thompson. He brings to the table not just age, but the wisdom that hasn't been seen in Washington since Ronald Reagan. Plus, Fred is a great communicator. If you doubt this, listen to him when he fills in for Paul Harvey. Clinton had the communication ability, but not the wisdom. Bush has some of the wisdom, but none of the communication ability. Why settle for a Democrat or a Republican who has one or the other or has both in lesser quantities than we need?

If that isn't a ringing endorsement of Fred Thompson, I don't know what is.
