HawkeyeGOP: Fred Thompson

Excerpted from this post at HawkeyeGOP

There has been a movement among social conservatives in Iowa to sell Fred Thompson as the anti-Rudy in the GOP field. I have heard all the talk about electability and the arguments go something like this: '... The only possible conservative alternative to Rudy is Fred Thompson. Fred has national name recognition and can raise the money.' National Right to Life has endorsed Thompson's candidacy, though Iowa Right to Life has declined to support any candidate. Still, I don't buy it. Fred Thompson is conservative enough but he has never been a conservative leader.
