In sports, they say a playoff series doesn't begin until someone wins a road game. That is, until something unexpected happens. Well, Tommy Thompson just did something unexpected.
Thompson is a conservative former governor of a swing state in the midwest, whose hallmark during his tenure was aggressive reform efforts. He did a stint as HHS Secretary, but probably qualifies as a 'Washington outsider.' Further, he's a fresh face.
All those things would be assets if he chooses to run.
Could be interesting.
Back to the top.
