Thompson…for….President?

My trade dictates that I take a beginning-of-year hiatus…glad to be back.

Nothing groundbreaking here. I just wanted to point out that a Republican presidential candidate that many believe to be a “true conservative” was in favor of a most anti-conservative legislation, that being campaign finance reform. It’s a WashPost article, so log in will be required.

    Noone makes fun of McCain Feingold more than me, or McCain because of it…so you make a good point.

    Thompson is way more Conservative than McCain on many other issues, so I don’t know that it’s a deal breaker…but definitely not a stock booster.

    Yes, this requires deep contemplation. It is about as close to a deal breaker as one can get. Maybe the supremes will limit or revise their ruling in the nearterm until reason prevails and it is finally declared unconstitutional. Other than that I want to hear more specific proposals about entitlement reform from all candidates (or at least the ones that count).

    Not to mention that there is now more money than ever in politics. Thanks McCain!
