The Real Thompson

This article goes past the highly selective sound bytes to paint the true picture of the candidate. The current media template is that Fred Thompson is a lazy guy who doesn't really even want to be president. The truth is that he is not personally consumed with seeking the presidency. Rather, he wants to do what's best for his family and the American people. So he's not running for president just to sit in the cool office and ride the big jet; rather, he's running to actually do something good for the country. He's not trying to be a rock star--he's trying to be a genuine man of strength, integrity and decency. Maybe America's through electing people like that, but I'm not.
