Fred Thompson, having long delayed his announcement, may have mistimed it after all. He chose to announce just a few days before 9-11. With Rudy Giuliani front and center on 9-11 (it is, after all HIS day), the former Mayor may catch up with the undisputed bounce that Thompson has gotten as a result of his announcement.
Fred gained rapidly in most polls with his announcement, passing Rudy in the Rasmussen polling for the first time since July. But will 9-11 even up the score? I think it probably will.
