Fred Thompson's past has just came up again, with results that could be harmful mattering on how the media reacts to it. Apparently, Thompson was close to the Nixon camp during the Watergate scandal, even though he had the appearance of a heavy hitter on the investigating panel. This added with the fact that he has a lobbying past will be brought up (by opponents and/or Democrats), which might ruin his run for President. We'll see how this turns out for him and his chances. If this blows over, he still has a shot at being number one in the race. Yet again, like I said before, he needs to seriously start campaigning and start going to debates before he ends up a "what if" candidate.
McCain has experienced the first stages of his second failed presidential election campaign. Two of his top advisors have resigned, marking the beginning of the end for his campaign. He is lagging in polls, lagging in respect from his party (for his immigration stance), and the public (for his support of the army surge). McCain is done for, yet again, there is always a spot for vice presidency right? Mitt Romney is next to go, just wait.
One down, another waiting to rise.
