Fred Thompson should enter the race for the Presidency now!
Former Republican Sen. Fred Thompson would be a tough opponent for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in a presidental election, a new poll shows.
According to the first Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey involving Thompson, the actor-turned-politician-turned-actor is neck-and-neck with Clinton, leading her by a margin of 44 percent to 43 percent.
Thompson, who has not yet officially announced his candidacy, doesn’t fare as well against Democratic Sen. Barack Obama. In the poll, Obama leads Thompson 49 percent to 37 percent.
