Fred Thompson Officially Running For President

Fred Thompson is now officially running for president. He made the announcement Wednesday on a late-night talk show.

The only surprise about this announcement was how long it took Thompson to make it. Party officials worry that waiting so long may have robbed the actor and former Tennessee senator of crucial time to build the staff and war chest needed to mount a presidential campaign.

His opponents had some laughs at his expense last night at a Republican debate in New Hampshire which Thompson did not attend.

McCain joked that the reason Thompson was not present may have been because they were up past his bed time.
