Law and Order Might Finally Be Brought to the White House

It looks like Law & Order actor and former Tennessee Senator, Fred Thompson, might be making a run at the White House. The conservative Republican said he's leaving the doors open while he evaluates the other Republican presidential candidates and their positions.

Besides Rudy Giuliani and possibly Mitt Romney, none of the other candidates in the race right now have a chance to beat Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama in my opinion. Here is how Thompson stands on some of the key issues: (From
  • Is "pro-life," and believes federal judges should overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade abortion rights decision as "bad law and bad medical science."
  • Opposes gay marriage, but would let states decide whether to allow civil unions. "Marriage is between a man and a woman, and judges shouldn't be allowed to change that."
  • Opposes gun control, and praised last week's 2-1 federal appeals decision overturning a long-standing handgun ban. "The court basically said the Constitution means what it says."
  • Supports President Bush's decision to increase troops in Iraq. "Wars are full of mistakes. You rectify them. I think we are doing that now," he said. "We've got to give it a chance to work."
  • Would pardon former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby's conviction for perjury and obstruction of justice now, rather than waiting until all his appeals are exhausted. Libby is "bearing the political brunt of something that should've never come about," Thompson said, noting that "practically every witness at trial had inconsistent statements."

What do you think about Fred Thompson? Would it be a good move for him to enter the race? Do you think he could beat Hillary or Obama? Before I give my opinion on him, I need to find out more about him, but I like his stand on the issues, and his presence on film is great. Remember Ronald Reagan folks.... In my opinion, the president's job is 75% acting and 25% substance. His main job no matter what is going on is to ACT in control and in charge. Fred Thompson could definitely do that.

Make it a great day!
