For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Fred and Hillary tied at 45% ---Clinton campaign getting nervous.

Looks like Rasmussen finally gave us a comparison between Fred Thompson and Hillary Clinton. And it shows them tied--45% each. This is an improvement from a month ago when Hillary was in front.

Recent storm clouds enveloping Hillary's campaign (illegal wire-tapping) along with stepped up organizing for Fred's have obviously had the desired effect. We should expect the Clinton camp to begin taking jabs at Thompson because of this---and they have. According to ALa there is a story pending in a liberal, left coast paper known as the Los Angeles Times claiming to have found links between Thompson and a pro-choice lobbying group. See details here. Apparently Fred had an office at a Washington D. C. law firm (as a draw for clients) in 1991 even though his own firm was located in Nashville, TN. Thompson was never a partner at Arent Fox (in D.C.), which was heavily Democrat with strong ties to the Clintons; but having him keep an office there was seen as an asset during a Republican administration.

Fred Thompson's own voting record on life issues can be found here and there.
