No Tommy in '06 campaign

Former governor and HHS secretary Tommy Thompson ended the speculation today when he declared he won't be running for governor.

Not even the bootlicking from Mark Belling could convince him to jump in and run against incumbent Jim Doyle. In all honesty though, if Doyle was to lose to a Republican, Tommy would have been the lesser of two evils. Unlike Mark Green and other reactionaries on the right wing, Thompson supports embryonic stem-cell research, and opposes gimics like TABOR.

For those who want Tommy to run for US Senate against Herb Kohl, don't hold your breath. I'm sure there are plenty of lucrative lobbying jobs that he'll be able to choose from.
