    He's been a congressional aide, a corporate lawyer, an actor, a two-term U.S. Senator, and a Big-time corporate lobbyist. It is simply untrue, as one answer has it, that Thompson is not beholden to special interests. Look it up-he seems to particularly excel at shielding corporate polluters from liability in asbestos-related legislation and lawsuits.

    As for Iraq- he defends the President's positions more fervently than anyone else in the race, except maybe McCain.

    Family values, yeah, he's all over that. Just ask the blonde trophy he divorced his wife to marry. She's like thirty-five years younger than Fred.

    Most Republicans seem very unsatisfied with the current crop of candidates, and they all want to ressurect Reagan. Somehow, Fred Thompson is the one everyone's focused on to sweep in and save the G.O.P.

    Truth is, there isn't a more insincere fatcat liar on either side of the field of candidates. And yes, I'm including Hillary.

    Source(s): wikipedia can give you the basics, but the guy's everywhere, just google him.

    Thompson is doing what he constantly did as a senator.... wait and wait and wait until its too previous with the aid of do something. If he's going to be the subsequent president then he extra advantageous initiate campaigning and debating... mutually as he waits the GOP donors are sending their money to exceptional applicants. those donors isn't spending lots extra on yet another candidate. you ought to compete with your familiar combatants with money... then in case you win the familiar you extra advantageous nonetheless have money to conflict the different celebration's candidate. The longer you wait the donations get smaller and smaller. This has been a concern with Thompson... he's very sluggish. he's clever yet sluggish and that's no longer a time to be sluggish.

    He is a Hollywood actor. The kind of person the Conservatives blame the Liberals for listening too.
