De novo, Fred Thompson

Can Fred Thompson rescue Republicans in 2008?

"From a conservative Republican point of view, all of the current candidates are lacking something. People think Fred Thompson can be the guy to fill that void," said Scott Graves, editor of Red County magazine in conservative Orange County south of Los Angeles.

At a Friday night speech to the Lincoln Club, a prominent Republican group in Orange County, Thompson frequently invoked former President Ronald Reagan as he pledged loyalty to bedrock conservative principles of lower taxes and smaller government.

"So many of our problems seem to be getting larger and so many of our politicians seem to be getting smaller," he said the day after the 10 Republican contenders met in their first debate just down the road at Reagan's presidential library in Simi Valley.
