"Some think the way to beat the Democrats in November is to be more like them. I could not disagree more," the one-time Tennessee senator says in remarks he is to deliver to the Conservative Party of .
"I believe that conservatives beat liberals only when we challenge their outdated positions, not embrace them. This is not a time for philosophical flexibility, it is a time to stand up for what we believe in," Thompson adds.Thompson needs to convince conservatives that he can buck Hollywood. Can he face the fire with an Alito appointee, or does he want to read good things about himself in the N.Y.Times and stake out a twilight gig on NBC or CBS?
Two data points of concern: His vote against removing Bill Clinton from office after the House impeachment AND his vote against defining marriage as one man and one woman. Both big Hollywood issues.
What say you, Fred?
We need a conservative in this race. Right now, you are our best hope.
