He's (officially) In

3 months after he began "testing the waters," Fred D. Thompson is ready to announce his candidacy for President of the United States. People have been getting a little frustrated with Big Fred, who certainly took his time coming to this decision. On a morning conference call with supporters, Friends of Fred (Thompson's campaign) announced their "next steps," which includes a webcast (a la Hillary Clinton) on September 6 to formally announce.

In an unfortunate twist, this means that NBC will pull all Law & Order re-runs in which Thompson appears, which sucks because those are the best ones. NBC is forced to do so because there would be complications with laws on equal time for political candidates.
