Fred Thompson in Florida

Fred Thompson made a semi-surprise stop at the national Young Republicans convention in Broward Saturday, joking, "This is a lot more friendly than the last Hollywood event I attended." Waxing nostalgic about Barry Goldwater, his own days as a YR, and the greatness of America, Thomson dismissed those predicting doom and gloom for the GOP in '08. Check out the full video here.


"I don't think the people of this country are going to turn the keys of this country over to the party of despair and division any more than they will elect a person that is driving over a left wing cliff,'' said Thompson, making no mention of a new report that he may have been hired to lobby for a abortion rights group.
