Fred Thompson To Announce in July? Or Not?

I think there is some wisdom in not announcing as early as the current batch of front runners have. I think a lot of people are already sick of hearing the names Obama, Romney, Hillary, McCain, Edwards, and Rudy. But a late announcement lends itself to all sorts of rumors as to when the announcement will happen, so, to that extend, I hope Thompson announces sooner or later. Apparently his intentions are clear though, quoting The Tennessean:

Thompson, a former U.S. Senator from Tennessee, has been coy about his intentions with audiences, but made clear in an interview that he plans to run.

More info/confusion about the whole "Thompson will announce July 4 start accepting contributions June 4" news/rumor:

Run, Fred, Run.

Oh, and if you are still undecided on Thompson, I recommend you give his speech to the Lincoln Club of Orange County a read. Good stuff. Solid guy.
