News that will likely take most Republicans' minds off Libby

Chris Wallace, just now on Fox News Sunday: "There's been a lot of buzz, as we've said, in Republican circles that there's no true conservative in the G.O.P. presidential field. Now some top Republicans, including your friend former Tennessee Senator Howard Baker, are putting out trial balloons about you possibly entering the race. Question: Are you considering running for president in 2008?"

Fred Thompson (nodding in the affirmative): "I'm givin' some thought to it, and gonna leave the door open."

Things just got a lot more interesting.

(Note, however, contra the headline in this post, that Thompson also said if he were president, he'd pardon Libby now. I doubt he'll lose many Republican primary voters for saying that.)

McCain's 1st and 2nd amendment positions make him DOA for me. Guliani is on life support.

I can't seem to remember the incident with Howard Baker which looked like the exit door was hitting him in the ass on his way to retirement. Perhaps it would be best if he stayed retired.

I could get excited with Fred Thompson.
