Sources are claiming Fred Thompson is dropping out of the race:
Ex-Sen. Fred Thompson has told several Republicans that he has decided to drop out of the presidential race and will make public his intentions by close of business.
Thompson does not plan to endorse any rivals for now, even though one of his best friends is Sen. John McCain.
I am not surprised to see this happen, although I am surprised the Thompson campaign did not get more enthusiastic support. If anything, his campaign resembled Terri Schiavo- listless, inert, and with no signs of life, so I really don’t know why it was not greeted with more enthusiasm by our friends on the right. Maybe one Schiavo affair was enough.
