Staffing Thompson's Campaign

Rob points out that Fred Thompson has a strong staff assembled so far, and should not look to 'McCain castoffs' to fill it out. I could not agree more.

Besides, McCain's problem in this race is that the conservative base does not like him. To take on his staff -- and be perceived as having done so -- would associate Thompson and McCain more closely. Given that Thompson and McCain are friends, and the biggest blemish on Thompson's legislative record is support for McCain-Feingold, such a move would be foolish. I would bet against it.
