Fred Thompson enters the Presidential arena tonight! I’m staying up to watch Leno and surf his webcast…

From the AP:

Thompson will make his candidacy official in a 15-minute Webcast set to air at midnight, around the same time that he’ll be seen on the East Coast chatting with Jay Leno on a taped broadcast of NBC’s “Tonight Show.”

He’ll call attention to his bid hours earlier with a 30-second ad during the eight-man GOP debate in New Hampshire that he’s skipping.

“On the next president’s watch, our country will make decisions that will affect our lives and our families far into the future. We can’t allow ourselves to become a weaker, less prosperous and more divided nation,” Thompson says in the ad that will air on Fox News.

So although he won’t be at the Republican debate, he’ll still steal the show with his ad. I love it! Now the GOP race will get more interesting. Go Fred Go!!!
