It is looking like the former Senator and more impressively former boss to “Roseanne” will run for the 2008 Republican Presidential nomination. Thompson will apparently hop into the race on July 4, 2007.
From the Politico:
Fred Dalton Thompson is planning to enter the presidential race over the Fourth of July holiday, announcing that week that he has already raised several million dollars and is being backed by insiders from the past three Republican administrations, Thompson advisers told The Politico.

Chuck Hagel (R-NE), declaring that he is in no way an “anti-war” candidate has just announced in Omaha, Nebraska that he will not announce whether or not he intends to run for President of the United States until later this year. He will keep his options open. This was a very weird press conference and DoubleSpeak will continue to follow the Hagel story as it unfolds.

The former Governor of Massachusetts has officially announced that he will seek the Republican nomination for President of the United States of America. Romney was, for the most part a failed Governor, having little accomplishments to point to. He did not seek a second term as Governor, because, well, he would have lost to this guy. Oh yeah, he’s also a liberal Democrat. UPDATE: Not that there is anything wrong with that.
