Fred Thompson chose the Enlightenment over the Dark Ages in an interview today with Tim Russert.
I heard that the entire interview was excellent — including the section on Iran which I don’t have yet. But on social conservative taboos like gay marriage and the Terry Schiavo case, Thompson sounded ideal.
If I was a registered Republican voting in a primary tomorrow, he’d have my vote for his performance today.
Agree with Thompson or not — I hope that a lot of other Republican faithful take the time to listen to and think about Thompson’s commentary.
