Exclamation Fred Thompson quits presidential race

well there goes my vote

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080122/...el_pr/thompson

NAPLES, Fla. - Former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson quit the Republican presidential race on Tuesday, after a string of poor finishes in early primary and caucus states.

"Today, I have withdrawn my candidacy for president of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort," Thompson said in a statement.

Thompson's fate was sealed last Saturday in the South Carolina primary, when he finished third in a state that he had said he needed to win.

In the statement, Thompson did not say whether he would endorse any of his former rivals. He was one of a handful of members of Congress who supported Arizona Sen. John McCain in 2000 in his unsuccessful race against George W. Bush for the party nomination.

Ron Paul has a slimmer chance at making it on a ballot than Thompson did.

Actually, at this point, RP does have all but a slim chance.....but he is somebody I can stand behind. I don't agree with him on a few of his social issues, but I agree with his fiscal ideas. He speaks his mind and isn't afraid.

But my sincere opinion is that anybody is better than what we have had the past eight years. I know some of you read that as blasphemy, but so be it.
