There may another Thompson joining the GOP field. Former Tennessee Senator turned Law and Order star Fred Thompson is considering a run for the White House.
Thompson appeared on Fox News Sunday this week and said "I'm giving some thought to it," and that he is "concerned about what's going on in this country, in the world."
There is already a web site urging Thompson to run, www.fred08.com. The site says "From tax cuts, to cleaning up government, to his vital role in the confirmation of Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, Fred Thompson has a record of fighting for conservative values."
Thompson voted against same-sex marriage and against partial birth abortions.
