Fredheads: Mourn, Move on

Yes, we Fred Thompson supporters mourn his departure.

And as we recover from the loss of Fred, some of us will be moving on to support other candidates. Like Romney.

Six months ago I would not have considered supporting Romney. His political conversions were to swift, too convenient, and unbelievably complete to seem genuine. But at least he's singing the right songs for the most part. If he'd give up on health mandates that would really vault him far ahead in my book.

But, as the National Review endorsement made clear, Romney is the best "full-spectrum conservative" who has a chance to win.

Romney knows the Fredheads are looking for a place to go.

And so, Romney inherits my support.
