I say kudos to Fred for once again putting his commitment to federalism above political expediency. Like most conservatives, I found the Schiavo case to be a tragedy and thought that the Florida courts should have erred on the side of life. But I also thought that the federal government had absolutely zero role in the matter. And I’m glad that Fred did not feel the need to pander on this one.

By the all caps treatment of “NOT” am I supposed to assume that you, Jennifer, supported federal intervention in this case? Or are you saying that if he were a better politician Thompson would have known to pander on this issue to appeal to social conservatives? I have the sense that if Thompson had been well informed and come out on the other side of this issue you would have attacked him for abandoning his federalist principles.
Also, as Ryan Sager pointed out, “Rudy Giuliani didn’t do the hottest job answering this question back in April.” You may not be a FredHead Jennifer, but it doesn’t seem fair to hold him to an entirely different standard by criticizing him for stumbles on which other candidates get a free pass.
