Fred Thompson

Fred Thompson has basically said he's running for President and I'm pretty excited about that. Though I consider myself to be fairly conservative and I've supported certain Republicans in the past. e.g. Senator Richard Shelby of Alabama, I generally fall on the Democratic side of the ticket due to my very strong belief that tort reform is wrong and those without the ability to pay lawyers hourly rates (upwards of $200+ per hour) ought to have the same access to the courts as those with the ability to pay. However, Fred Thompson is a man who generally understands that tort reform is wrong. Here's an article from the National Review ripping Fred Thompson on the issue and here's Fred Thompson's response. For the first time in the last 25+ years, I have a potential Presidential candidate who understands tort issues and recognizes many of the things I written about here before. This is good news.
