People Not Running Doing Great!

In the amazingly early season of the 2008 Presidential election, we now have people atwitter about people who aren’t even running for President.

The latest news is about Fred Thompson, former senator from Tennessee, is a well-known figure, portraying District Attorney Arthur Branch on TV’s Law and Order. He also does commentary on Paul Harvey’s radio program. He’s an old-school conservative, has good poise, charm, and communicates well. He has great potential, but all this hub-bub is meaningless if he’s not running.

And he’s not running.

But his not-running running has had the biggest impact on someone else who’s not running, Newt Gingrich.

Now, some more caveats. There are other, state-by-state polls that tell a slightly different story. In New Hampshire, an ARG polls shows Mr. Giuliani dipping, possibly because of Mr. Thompson. But an ARG poll of likely Iowa caucus-goers shows Newt Gingrich as the biggest loser (with his poll numbers cut more than in half), and not a big change for Mr. Giuliani. In Ohio, a Quinnipiac poll also showed Mr. Gingrich as the biggest loser.

So, the news filter is going nuts over Thompson and Gingrich, two people who aren’t even running for President.

It is for this reason that I am not declaring my candidacy for President in 2012. Now, how many points am I up?
