Caucus Cooler: Tony Leys for President? "Why Not?"

Excerpted from this post at Caucus Cooler
Apparently Tommy Thompson thinks he's running for President. We're not sure what's more telling about Tommy Thompson's revelation: that the story was broken in the Des Moines Register by Tony Leys or that the phrase "Why Not" was prominently involved. ... Thompson then goes on to make this announcement by saying, "I hope so, "Why not? I'm from the Midwest. There should be a Midwestern candidate for president." That's a real sign of strength when you are making a bid for the Presidency. He thinks the two top issues will be health care and energy- we think he might be overlooking the War on Terror. We find the guys who float their name for President just to stay relevant quite amusing.
