Former Wisconsin Gov. Tommy Thompson this week announced he would NOT run for his old job, which leaves the GOP field to promising but less known candidate Mark Green. But the story in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel did contain this news:
Bob Wood, a former chief of staff for Thompson in Madison and Washington, said Sunday that Thompson’s statement deliberately left open the possibility that he might still run against U.S. Sen. Herb Kohl (D-Wis.). That is considered unlikely, however.
Thompson “will make that (Senate) decision this week,” Wood said.
Thompson left Madison on Sunday and was not available for further comment, a spokesman said.
This Senate thing should be of interest to all political junkies, because a race between the extremely popular Thompson (one of the best governors ever, ANYWHERE), and the also popular, fairly congenial Kohl would be one of the most fascinating and closest Senate races anywhere in a long, long time.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
