Fred Thompson has announced that he intends to leave the political arena and go back into acting, and has some useful opportunities to do so.

Good on him. He was a horridly incompetent political candidate. He's a watchable actor. And this decision demonstrates that he's an intelligent guy.

Fred Thompson can act?

I beg to differ. If he could act, he would have acted interested in his own candidacy.

He's been a tolerable Senator for the state of Tennessee, but I'm sure Bruce Willis needshim back in Hollywood. Ta-ta, Fred.

Pretty much a lateral move, imo.

At least he sucks less as an actor.

Dude, you of all people should applaud him. He's what we want in politician: someone who sees his service as temporal.

The best kind of politician is the one that isn't fixated on holding on to power, that is willing to serve, then return to private life.

Yeah, I liked that about him. I was even happy to see him enter the race. However, his performance was abysmal. I think he slept through the whole race. Like I said, he sucks less as an actor than he did as a presidential candidate.

I think his candidacy was more about Jeri's ambitions to be First Lady than his to be President.

Whatever one thinks of Fred Thompson, the role of politician and actor differs little.

Sorry, I disagree.

It's always good to go back to something you're actually good at.

I don't know if Fred Thompson would have made a good president, but I'd have voted for Arther Branch.
