Republican Fred Thompson (above) withdrew today from the presidential race. He showed promise early, but once he got on the campaign trail fizzled out.
On the Democratic side, Governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico withdrew last week.
The field is gradually thinning out, but the heat is being turned up, witness the Democratic debate last evening. Lots of verbal barbs and heated exchanges.
Super Tuesday is approaching and I anticipate further culling of the herd. Stay tuned it is getting exciting.
