Exes Back Fred

I don't know how he managed this, but even Fred's ex-wife and former girlfriends like the guy and will campaign for him. The Times (UK) tried digging dirt on Fred, and apparently found nothing but women who still think the world of him. Speaks well for his character if nothing else.

In the battle for the women’s vote, Fred Thompson has a secret weapon against Hillary Clinton - the legions of former girlfriends who still adore him and who want him to be president.

The Hollywood actor and former Tennessee senator racked up an impressive list of conquests during his swinging bachelor days in the 1990s, but he appears to have achieved the impossible and kept their friendship and respect.

... he was on excellent terms with his first wife and home-town sweetheart Sarah Knestrick, whom he married in Tennessee at 17 and divorced 26 years later. Thompson said he had just spoken to her and she was intending to campaign for him.

“It says a lot about his character that his ex-wife and ex-girlfriends think he is fabulous,” said Mosbacher [a leading Republican fundraiser who is another former girlfriend]. "Character is important in a president."
