ABC's Thompson: I'd Like To Be President

He's still short of an official announcement, but ABC RADIO commentator and former Senator FRED THOMPSON told JAY LENO on TUESDAY night's edition of NBC's "TONIGHT SHOW" that he would like to be President.
Responding to LENO's question about whether he'd like the job, THOMPSON said, "I've never craved the job of president, but I want to do some things that only a president can do. So the answer is yes." THOMPSON has formed an exploratory committee in preparation for a run, and polls show him gaining on GOP front-runner RUDY GIULIANI even without a formal declaration of his candidacy.
...I want to do some things that only a president can do.
