Of course, we have heard this rumor before.

PS. Was Thompson the only real conservative in the race?

It looks like the article's been updated with his formal statement of concession. I admit to some disappointment - I think he was the best GOP candidate. Here's hoping for Rudy!

Guy just never got his campaign into gear. Unfortunate result of entering late. Giuliani is pretty much a dead candidate.. Im under the impression the ignore the cold weather up north strategy has hurt him while hes been sun bathing in florida :roll:

Did Fred still have any support left to go anywhere? He's been a dead fish for so long, I wasn't aware he was still running.

For conservatives, the Republican race is shaping up as a "reverse" beauty contest- the least ugly candidate will win. I think for many that choice is looking more like McCain. He may have the best chance against the Dems ( at this point).

Yeah that's definitely disappointing because I thought that not only was he the best GOP candidate but the best man for the job of President.

I guess I can find him on Law & Order reruns now.

Funny, that is the same reason the Liberals picked Dion...

Likely Huckabee, as he is seen as the most conservative down south, but Thompson is close with McCain and it wouldn't suprise me to see an endorsement.

Glad hes out, would've been torture listening to his slow southern drawl forthe next four years.

Yeah I think you're right, with Thompson out Huckabee is the only balanced conservative left in the race. With Hunters endorsement today I wouldn't be surprised if a high percentage of Duncan's and Fred's votes go to Mike.

Mcain is the guy the dems like best, he's one of them (foreign affairs aside}
For all the Dems who would refuse to vote for Hillary they can hold their nose and vote for the other Dem in the race....Plus John is gonna help save us from global warming, it's all good.

So Dem, or Dem Lite? Sounds like Canadian politics.

From what I've seen, Huckabee's record doesn't earn him "conservative" status by a long shot. At least McCain favored the troop "surge" in Iraq when no one else had the guts (other than Bush) to do so. The Dems would eat Huckabee's lunch just on his record as Arkansas governor. No dog in this fight, just sayin'. :)

Huckabee's tax and illegal immigration record will not help him with the Thompson crowd. I predict most Thompson supporters will go over to the Romney camp. He is the most conservative of the candidates left.
