Fred Thompson Drops Out

My second favorite candidate behind Rudy Giuliani has dropped out of the race for president, as many thought he would after a mediocre finish in South Carolina. In a brief statement, Thompson broke the news, saying, "Today I have withdrawn my candidacy for President of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort. Jeri and I will always be grateful for the encouragement and friendship of so many wonderful people." Senator Thompson is indeed a true conservative, and it's a shame that more people didn't rally behind him in his effort to secure the nomination. I still think he would make a great VP, and another candidate would be wise to persuade him to join their ranks.
