GLENN: Running for President of the United States, Mr. Fred Thompson. Hello, senator, how are you, sir?

SENATOR THOMPSON: Hello, Glenn, I'm doing good.

GLENN: Very good. Good to have you on the program. I know South Carolina is a big state for you and right now it's really between you and Mike Huckabee. What would you say the biggest difference is between the two of you?

GOP Candidate Fred Thompson

SENATOR THOMPSON: Well, first of all I'm not sure it's just between us. Frankly I assumed coming down here that he would probably be my primary competition here but I'm not sure that's the case anymore but we'll see. As I indicated in the debate deal the other night, you know the question was posed whether or not the Reagan coalition was dead and Governor Huckabee's campaign manager was quoted by the moderator as saying that basically it was dead, and I took issue with that. I think that it's a battle for really the heart and soul of the Republican party as to which direction we're going to go, and those who think it's dead, we need to move in a more so-called Progressive or so-called moderate or populist manner in order to emulate the Democrats more, in order to beat the Democrats, or those of us who think that the Reagan coalition was based upon sound constitutional principles that were valid in the beginning of this country and are still valid today. A strong national defense, limited government, strong stand on Second Amendment and conservative judges. [more here]

Glenn Beck? I stopped paying attention to him when I found out what he did to all those dogs (pit bulls).
