David Broder’s column indicates that Fred Thompson is going to focus on entitlement reform. This, I think, is precisely the type of specific, meaty policy proposal he needs to communicate he is a serious contender. Will he just talk about the problem or will he put forth a full blown, concrete plan for reforming entitlements? If the former (or some variation of “I will set up a commission”) it’s a waste and will just repeat what McCain (perhaps others, but I am not certain) already have said. If he throws caution to the wind and offers a real plan he deserves real credit.
