Why I Might Vote For Fred Thompson

Strike one: He's not leading man material.

Strike two: It's hard to take him seriously. He's not pushing any big-ticket initiatives.

Which is also a good thing. He seems to genuinely believe in small-government conservatism, up to and including a robust Federalism. I like that. But I have this gut feeling that no President can actually function with that philosophy.

Update: Whups, forgot about...

Strike three: He's a former Senator.

Guess I won't be voting for him after all.
