This contest is fueled by the following news: Conservative politician from south, actor, Republican Fred Thompson announced his candidacy in the US Presidential elections. After three months wait for this step, sympathy of republicans shifted from him to Former Mayor of New York Rudolph Giuliani. Though is suffering from non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL), a form of cancer, Thompson supposes to repeat the destiny of Ronald Reagan. Right from summer, everybody anticipated an official announcement about his intention to participate in Presidential elections from Former Senator of State Tennessee Mr. Fred Thompson. However, election campaign was postponed from June to July and then to the beginning of September. On Thursday, Head of electoral campaign of Thompson, Mr. Bill Lacy stated that the Ex. Senator stopped "Testing the waters" & announcement of Thompson is scheduled for September 6. Meanwhile, Thompson is one of the most probable winners of Republican primaries. In spite of three month slip, Thompson is already second in the popularity list of politicians in Republican Party after Ex. Mayor of New York Mr. Rudolph Giuliani. According to latest August survey Gallup, Rudolph Giuliani is way ahead of Thompson by 13% but survey, conducted by CNN indicates that the candidates are separated by mere 8% votes of electoral. However, one more contestant Mr. Mitt Romney, Former Governor of State Massachusetts is very close to Thompson. Most probably, Thompson shall continue to stress upon his favorite topics of national security, tax procedures and striving to return back towards traditional republican principles. Last week, Thompson addressed a gathering in Indianapolis, where he criticized the current policies of USA. The Washington Post writes with citing made by aides of Thompson that the former senator is intending to use vast experience of campaigns in Senate. After winning the elections twice, Thompson did muster the image of "Simple guy". However, more shrewd approach is required for national presidential campaign: Recently, Thompson was a subject of laughter for leather moccasin Gucci, which he wore for a city trade fair in Iowa. Member of House of Representatives from state Tennessee Jack Wimp, who tried to persuade Thompson to start the campaign earlier, considers that former Senator can quickly go ahead of Giuliani with his forces. "A saying is prevalent in South that a wiry dog can hunt better". Thompson wiry candidate and his appearance distinguishes him from other candidates", considers Wimp. In 2004, it is diagnosed that Thomson is suffering from cancer. His lymphatic system is affected. However, his doctor confirms that patients, suffering from similar disease "can lead full-fledged life". Confidence of Thompson in his capabilities and his quite good physical shape create sympathy in voters and attract the supporters. Several analysts, however, think that Thompson had dragged too much with his decision to announce his candidacy for president due to sympathy of electoral-republicans and cannot make up for the lost thee months. Actually, according to the combined survey of Bloomberg & Los Angeles Times in April, Thompson with 21% votes of republicans had an edge over Giuliani by 4 points. Now the situation has changed altogether. One more problem of Thompson is his excessive conservative views. Thompson openly supported the war in Iraq and came out strongly against the current immigration policy of USA. Often, Thompson is compared with 40th President of USA Mr. Ronald Reagan. Really, Thompson intended to repeat the destiny of Reagan and find himself in Whitehouse straight from Hollywood. Thompson is sufficiently popular character actor "Episode King". In particular, he played bit parts in films such as "Die Hard -2", "Day of Thunder", "The Hunt for Red October" and others. In almost all films, Thompson actually played self. In 1994, New York Times profile wrote that "When Hollywood directors need someone who can personify governmental power, they often turn to Thompson". He even played in television serials including in one of the episodes of "Sex and the City". In the final months of his U.S. Senate term in 2002, Thompson joined the cast of the long-running NBC television series "Law & Oder", playing the District Attorney Arthur Branch. Potentially, the need to contest the Presidential election had forced Thompson to refuse from the role. On May 30, 2007 he asked to be released from the role due to which, the analysts came to a conclusion about the preparation of Thompson for presidential bid. In 2005, Thompson enacted the role of American President in documentary drama about nuclear terrorism "Last best chance". At present, he is putting all his efforts to jump from screen directly into Oval Office.
