What About Fred?

You know what would absolutely blow everyone away? If we go through all this speculation about McCain's running-mate (Romney, Pawlenty, Palin, Lieberman, Ridge, et al) and it ends up being one guy we haven't been talking about: Fred Thompson. Sure, he's said he doesn't want the job, but I defy you to find me one politician in modern history that has admitted he did want to be VP. Fred would thrill the base and the pick would be right out of left field. Just a thought.
