How else to read this?

Quote:
When Thompson met with Bill Frist at the Mayflower Hotel, they had important business to discuss. More than two years ago, Thompson had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. It is “indolent” lymphoma, a slow-growing form of the disease that is not usually symptomatic. If you’re going to have one of the 33 varieties of lymphoma, Thompson says, this is the one you want. “It’s easy to diagnose, easy to treat and easy to live with,” Frist, a physician, confirms. But it sounds scary, the kind of thing that might spook potential primary voters if it were disclosed by an announced candidate.
“We thought we had to get it out early,” says Frist, “in the sense that he’s going to be announcing.”


Not enough proof?

Quote:
Thompson says he came to respect George W. Bush during the 2000 campaign because of his plan to reform Social Security. Congressional Republicans considered the plan a political liability, and it went nowhere. Thompson says that although it was only tinkering on the margins of real reform, it was a good start. He won’t share his own plan–“I’ll roll that out at the appropriate time”–but the general principle he articulates sounds like a political risk.


I don’t know any private citizens planning to “roll out” their plans to reform social security, so unless something very unusual happens in the next few weeks, he’s in.

The full piece is easily the best profile of him that I’ve read so far. Takeaway: “Over the next two decades, Thompson would appear in dozens of films and television shows as a character actor, often one who personifies government strength. It is a role that seems to fit.” Exit question: How many weeks after the announcement until he leads in the polls? (Exit answer: Six!)

Rudy is doomed. Fred will crush him. I'm still for Rudy, but Fred is gonna be tough to stop.

....oh yeah, Newt is probably coming too.

Fred and Newt are both going to garner more support from the conservative base of Republicans. That base isn't fond of Rudy or McCain.

Thompson/Hunter is a good combination too.

I’d really like to see Hunter as the President eventually, but I don’t think he has a decent chance this go-round.

Yeah I like Hunter too, but I don't see him making much headway.

Maybe he makes it as a VP.

I like Rudy because he's shown an ability to lead. Newt has also shown it. Hunter needs a little experience still IMO.

Fred is intriguing. I think he and Newt are probably tied for my 2nd choice - and they aren't too far behind Rudy.

I'd be pretty enthused about a ticket containing any combo of the 4.

I'm not a true conservative though. I like being a neo-con.

The only leading i've seen rebublicans do is leading this country right into a hole!
Somalia,Iraq, tax cuts for the wealthy, Enron, Katrina, Homeland security,
Nafta, Cafta, SHAFTA!
SHAFTA= big business at the expense of the majority of tax payers.

It's a sad sight to see someone trying to ride a dead horse.
Good job browny. :lol:

You do realize the whole 'AFTA' thing started with BJ and his NAFTA plan?

Perot (my guy, twice) warned us about the 'huge sucking sound' of jobs going to Mexico if we accepted NAFTA.

The Democrats only have shown an ability to lead us to defeat. I'm not ready to vote for defeat.

well that would make half of the team...i say lee iacocca and ross would make a very good team for this country as they have made all the mistakes and and know more about business than all of the white house and congress put together...and they don't need the damn money or fame
