Cokie Roberts sums up Fred Thompson

Columnist and ABC/NPR commentator Cokie Roberts did a good job summing up the candidacy of former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson for the Republican presidential nomination.

She says he's not a real candidate but an actor playing a candidate and people for the most part are seeing through that phoniness and not buying the movie.

Well said.

I've had doubts about Thompson from before "Day One." He's never acted like a serious candidate and thus it's hard to get excited about him.
