A manager searching for a campaign

Sometimes Senator, sometimes actor Fred Thompson may not be an “official” candidate for President but he has already put a political pro on his staff to be manager of a campaign that, technically, does not yet exist.

Bill Lacy, a power player in Washington, signed on this week to run the campaign that is not yet announced.

Sounds like the decision is made.
