    I'm all for Tom, but true, he is a long shot. Fred Thompson seems to be picking up some steam also. Maybe the two of them on the same ticket.

    I know some people have been holding back on donations to certain candidates, waitng for them to make an announcement. If Tom does enter the race, the money will increase more rapidly.

    What I like about Tom, is that he's more conservative, than Republican. It tells you something when Bush's cronies don't like him.
