Alexander: Democrats Fear Thompson... and should

Good article of Fred Thompson's effects on the general election, not just the Republican primaries - go read it all for lots of thinking points for the 2008 campaign.

The GOP frontrunners -- Rudy Giuliani, John McCain and Mitt Romney -- each have their own peculiar weaknesses. Common to them all, however, is their lack of bona fides among conservative voters -- the Republican base. Without the conservative vote, it is highly questionable whether any one of the current frontrunners could pull off a convincing primary victory.

Democrats clearly understand their Republican opponents' limitations, which is why they are confident that one of their far-left-of-center frontrunners, Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, will win the presidency in '08.

However, if conservatives and the rest of the Republican electorate want to line up behind the most capable, qualified and electable candidate in the '08 presidential race, a man who can carry the Reagan mantle and draw an enormous crossover vote (as President Reagan did in 1980 and 1984), then call out Fred Thompson.
