Sorry Quin, I don’t see the sell in this idea. Reagan and Ford toyed with the idea of dividing up the normal role of the presidency along these lines and it struck everyone as inappropriate. More germane to the fun question posed (and this stuff is fun) is why in the world Thompson would want to bring on Romney if he lost three major primaries in a row, has gained a reputation of a poser and is doing so poorly with key GOP groups (e.g. every income group except $150-200K earners, evangelicals) while sporting the only negative favorable/unfavorable rating among the name GOP contenders. After basing his campaign on an explicitly anti-Romney theme ( the “consistent conservative”) , Thompson, I think, would not turn around and cozy up to him.

It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
