The non-candidate candidate...

...took 2nd place in a recent Harris poll:

Fred Thompson, the former U.S. Senator from Tennessee and TV and movie star, is now tied with Senator John McCain for second place as the Republicans' first choice for President in the 2008 elections. However, they are both a long way behind former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who is preferred by fully 38 percent of those who believe they will vote in the Republican primaries or caucuses.
The current wide field of candidates will soon thin, with the cream rising to the top. Giuliani's complete dissing of the pro-life movement within the Republican party will not do him any favors as the primaries draw near. Fred Thompson's upcoming break from his TV career suggests that he is more than serious about running; and this and other polls around the nation suggests that he has more than adequate support.
