Fred Thompson is “not particularly interested in running for president’

Big gaffe. He was much pretty toast anyway, but still. It really is amazing to see how volatile the Republican side of the nomination still is. Not that the Democratic side isn’t getting interesting, with Obama catching up (caught up?) to Hillary, and Edwards finally showing everyone that he still does have a chance. Also, it just goes to show you how these candidates have to be “on” for 24 hours a day, non-stop. That’s hard. Any interview with a good reporter is challenging – good reporters have a way of poking you with questions that are hard NOT to answer, even when you know you shouldn’t. And with the grueling schedule these candidates have, it’s no surprise that they’re sometimes just tired and caught off their guard. Every minute of every day is under a microscope. Really quite fascinating. And maybe a little disturbing.
