March 12, 2007 at 6:36 AM (PT)
Could ABC NEWS RADIO's FRED THOMPSON be running for President? The former TENNESSEE Senator and present actor and PAUL HARVEY fill-in didn't tell FOX NEWS SUNDAY that he's running, but he didn't say no, only offering that he'll "leave the door open" and "I’m going to wait and see what happens. I want to see my colleagues on the campaign trial, what they say, what they emphasize, whether they can carry the ball next NOVEMBER... I think people are somewhat disillusioned. A lot of people are cynical out there. They’re looking for something different."
THOMPSON, a Republican, served one term in the Senate in 1994-2003 and plays District Attorney ARTHUR BRANCH on NBC's "Law And Order." He serves as Special Program Host and Sr. Analyst for ABC NEWS RADIO.
