Fred builds steam, friction

The latest polls show Fred Thompson rising rapidly--only six points behind Giuliani, according to the most recent LA Times/Bloomberg poll.

Meanwhile, George Will has a column in the June 18 Newsweek blasting Thompson as a candidate who's all sizzle and no substance--Reagan as his critics saw him, Will charges, as opposed to the real thing. (Judging from the only policy stance ascribed to the candidate in the column, Will has an axe to grind here--namely, McCain-Feingold, which Thompson voted for while in the Senate.)
