The Real Sporer: Fred's out. Whither Florida?

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer

Fred Thompson made it official today; he's out of the Presidential race. TRS must confess some disappointment with the Thompson campaign. TRS, like most other Republicans, was looking for the "perfect" candidate last summer. FDT seemed to fit the bill. My confidence was first shaken when Fred failed to jump in right before the Straw Poll, when all of the money and national attention gave him tremendous momentum. Attending the Straw Poll, where the national wind and latest flavor of the month at Baskin & Robbins circumstance of the race last summer gave him a great chance of winning, or placing second at least, was a huge missed opportunity.
