For My Many Fredhead Friends

Allahpudit put up this clip of Fred's sitdown with Sean Hannity incase you missed it or like me doesn't have FOX news in their cable package/ They of course have the transcript and the rest of the interview video online. Fred and Sean discuss the VP question and Barack Obama.

It's not in the video but I found this exchange worth noting about John McCain.

HANNITY: What do you say to conservatives that were supporting you because they deemed you as more conservative that maybe had some issues with Senator McCain?

THOMPSON: I would say to my friends that, on all of the issues that are most important to this country and to our future, and to the future generations, John McCain is solid on. Certainly national security, with regard to the tax issues, with regard to trade policy, which is an important part of our prosperity also, all those things he's been strong on for a long time.

He is one of the few people in the United States Congress, if not the only one, who over a period of several years, who stood strong on pork barrel spending and wasteful government spending and so forth, you know.

And one of the things that we're going to need in a leader going forward in this country, and one of the things we're going to need to get somebody elected president on the Republican ticket in these times that are very difficult for Republicans, is someone with credibility.

John's solid. I don't agree with him on everything. I didn't during the campaign. But on the fundamental core issues, he is rock solid. And he's honest. And he does what he thinks is right.

Sidenote: Don't miss my guest blogger Bar's great post below, another must read.
