Cutting straight to the money quotes:
First, Thompson exudes the same great presence and ease of manner in person that he does on television. He's likeable and quick with the good one-liner.
Some of his answers were crisp, but others were rambling and a bit unfocused. Moreover, he was better on generalities than on specifics.
Clearly this is going to be an attempt to resurrect Reagan. Our Pal The Gipper could offer up a turd and make you believe it was a fudge brownie, and Thompson is cut from the same cloth. Anyone who demeans him as just another actor had best remember that he's made a very good living out of telling believable fairy tales. If he gets the right support team behind him, he could easily win the nomination.
