Fred Thompson Drops out…

images.jpgThompson withdrew from the race. Many hailed him as the front runner before he entered the race. However, his third place in South Carolina was too overwhelming for a candidate who invested so much in his high positioning in that state. Fox reports:

Fred Thompson dropped his presidential bid Tuesday, after the former Tennessee senator and actor finished third in the South Carolina primary and was unable to score a victory in any of the early primaries or caucuses.

Thompson was the closest to a Constitutionalist in the Republican race, save Ron Paul. Unfortunately, his position on the war was the same as the other four neo-cons on the stage. Thompson also considered himself a Federalist. As a southern and more traditional candidate, he may be orchestrating a possible VP move should a more moderate Republican win the nominee. Perhaps some of his supporters will take Federalism seriously and embrace a true Constitutionalist and the only peace candidate, Ron Paul.
