As a member of the Calvin Coolidge wing of the Republican party, I hope Fred Thompson hurries up and formally gets into the 2008 primary.
On federalism, there may be no better candidate. His [Thompson's] Senate record is replete with examples of his being the lone opponent of legislation that he thought undercut federalist principles. He took this position even on legislation that was otherwise supported by conservatives. He opposes federal action to prohibit gay marriage on federalist grounds, although he supports state bans. One blight on this record is his vote in favor of No Child Left Behind.
