Fred Thompson, former US Senator, dead at 73

Following his time in the senate, Thompson played District Attorney Arthur Branch on Law & Order for five seasons, leaving the show to run for president.

Thought to be a contender during the early stages of the 2008 Republican presidential primary cycle, Thompson drew little support in many of the early states and he took a big hit when the former Southern senator failed to win South Carolina. He eventually dropped out in late January.

I had hoped for the opportunity to vote for this man for President.  Common sense and honor.   Think of how much better off we would be today.

I’m not ashamed of any choices I’ve made in casting my vote for President.  I know I would not have been ashamed of my uncast vote for Fred.
