Fred Thompson with Tim Russert on Meet The Press

UPDATE TUESDAY: Mike Huckabee weighs in on Thompson's stand on abortion. Does Thompson want it both ways? Having our cake and eat it too? I don't know. But I DO know Thompson speaks as a politician, familiar with the laws of the land, and not as a theologian. I like many of Mike's positions, with the exception of illegal immigration. There, he loses me completely. Completely.

Prediction; Thompson will never be President. But maybe VP. I like Fred tremendoulsy, but I am a realist, and it's never going to happen for him as President. (And heaven knows, I want nothing more than to be proven wrong.)

Does Fred think the same way that I do? Probably in his heart of hearts.

Fred reiterates he believes life begins at conception. But will social conservatives like his Federalist stand on abortion laws being a state decision and not a Constitutional Amendment? Only time will tell.

Russert held his feet to the fire and Thompson kept his cool. Only Hillary gets to be righteously indignant and whine at such a line of tough questioning. How dare Russert be so hard on her and that well sculptured image of hers.

I think Fred just can't get it going in the right direction. Prediction: He'll throw in the towel by Jan.1.
