Enter Fred Thompson. While others debate the ins and outs of McCain, Giuliani, and Romney, Fred has swooped in and captured the hearts of many conservatives without even declaring his candidacy. His commentaries and speeches make conservative hearts skip a beat, and he seems to have the gravitas needed in a leader. Hence the question. No one knows how much of the Hollywood actor is in the commentaries, and if he has the strength of will to back it all up at the test. Giuliani has demonstrated his ability to lead in a crisis, and Romney has fairly good conservative credentials. Either one could possibly do the job, and do it well; but for now, I'm with Fred.
