The Night Before the Infamy-Nashville City Club 1/12/08

I still believe that if he had wanted it, this man would be President of the United States today. Fred Thompson didn't seem too disappointed though. He was the night's keynote speaker and he really sounded like his old self, like he was on the stump running for the U.S. Senate again. In fact, Fred sounded so good that night that it almost made me wonder if he was going to run for Governor-almost. Is Fred as cool and collected in person as he is on television? Absolutely!



I'll remember this moment and this picture because there will be
fewer and fewer of these moments for Tennesseans to share with
someone who made such history. My minute with the Godfather
himself-former U.S. Senator, Senate Republican Leader, and Reagan
White House Chief of Staff Howard Baker, Jr. Yes, he really was that
gracious.


Enjoying a moment of fun and conversation with a great view of the city with State Representative Stacey Campfield.


In the middle of conversation with 3rd District Congressman and Republican Gubernatorial candidate Zach Wamp-about the 2010 race for Tennessee Governor.

A moment with Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn.

David,
You've gone completly delusional if you think that Thompson could, "if he wanted it", have won the election. He was an even looser goose than McCain when it came to concrete policy proposals. His whole schtick is/was nothig more than "friendly and wise Grandpa." Thyat wasn't what the voters were looking for.They proved that when the overwhelmingly rejected McCain.
You're living in a bubble, David. A bubble of your own making. Enjoy it while you can.

Steve;
You're living in a bubble if you actually think that I care what you think about Fred Thompson, my friend. You must not have much better to do out there in Kansas.

Anon #2: The Merlot was mine. Stacey, it should be pointed out, is a teetotaler. I had a drink and Stacey's girlfriend had a drink, but The Rep. drank narry a drop.

Stacey's girlfriend is old enough to drink? From his first campaign when questioned about the age of his 17 year old girlfriend.

Stay classy.
