The Best Prospective President...

And one of the lesser Presidential candidates, has withdrawn.

Fred Dalton Thompson, a man who can be as comfortable without the Presidency as with it, withdrew from the race this morning. He was conservatives' last, best hope and will be sorely missed.

UPDATE: It was distressing when National Review, the magazine of Bill Buckley, chose to endorse Mitt Romney. I didn't and don't agree, creating only the second time I've disagreed with a position that I know Bill supports.

That said, the tribute paid Fred Thompson in Top-Notch Thompson by National Review Online's Kathryn Jean Lopez is the finest I've ever read. I encourage you to enjoy it and commend her for writing it. Well done.

At best, the coming election will be disappointing.

At best.

We very well could be facing the worst case scenario this November. If McCain gets the nomination, the only reason to vote will be for local and congressional tickets.
