Thompson's Wife Driving Candidacy
The spectacle of Fred Thompson's Republican rivals "demeaning his wife, Jeri, in conversations with newsmen, suggests how seriously they regard his prospective candidacy," observes the latest Evans-Novak Political Report.
Close associates "maintain that there was no chance Fred Thompson would be a candidate for President were he not married to Jeri. He tells friends the reason he abandoned what seemed a promising campaign for the 1996 nomination was that he did not feel he could manage that endeavor as a single man."
Either they're setting up Thompson for a fall 'cause something screws up with his wife, or old "Hollywood Fred" is a big wussy.
