For weeks now I have been offering up my thoughts about the GOP primary battle and the various candidates who are vying for the nomination. At one point I took a serious look at John McCain. But I have come to the conclusion that as much as I might like and respect Senator McCain, what the Republican Party (and the country) needs most right now is conservative leadership. And looking at the current slate, I only see three possibilities for that: Rudy Guiliani, Mitt Romney, and Fred Thompson. (I don't include Ron Paul because of one major difference I have with him.) As I understand it, today is a make or break day for Thompson. So as I prepare to watch the proceedings in South Carolina, I just have one thing to say:
"GO, FRED, GO!"
