John was in Des Moines today, reporting about the “late” entry into the Presidential Campaign of Fred Thompson. I captured a really, really great picture of John smiling while he was being interviewed by John Roberts who was in the CNN studio:
That was just great luck in pausing the video at the exact right moment!! John was giggling about a question posed to him by Roberts, in reference to how Fred Thompson can ever afford being in the race.
John says: “It is not too late as long as he comes out of the block strong”.
Here are John and Candy on the split screen with Roberts. He introduced them as “Two members of the best political team on televsion.” As if John or Candy haven’t heard that one before!!!
An interesting graphic was displayed:
Only a day into his official annoucement and Thompson is in 2nd place in the polls!! Those are the overall figures. However, Roberts points out that when you break it down state by state his percentages fluctuate.
John closes by saying that many conservative republicans want to see a “new flavor” in the race.
New flavor? Hmm. How about “Thompson’s Rocky Road Ice Cream”?
ANYONE joining the presidential race, no matter how early or how late, is going to have a “rocky road” ahead of them.
Have a good evening everyone and see you tomorrow!
