Where was this Fred Thompson?

I was an early supporter of Sen. Fred Thompson and Rep. Duncan Hunter in the Republican primaries. Neither man made much head way in fund raising or garnering votes. Thompson was particularly disappointing as he never seemed to have the fire in his belly for campaigning. Maybe it's that he didn't have it in him to strongly attack in a primary contest those he basically agrees with and likes. Whatever the reason, tonight before the Republican convention he gave an enthusiastic speech supporting Sen. John McCain's candidacy. The first thing that hit me was why didn't we see this 8 months ago? Tonight he is fighting harder for John McCain than he fought for himself. Read into that what you want, but to me it shows he would rather fight for someone than against someone.

Bill,

Ive been gone for a few days, but you were one of the earliest people I remember discussing Palin as a pick. Well done.

I think she will give a great speech tonight.
