Over at National Review Online, Carrie Lukas has the questionable notion that Fred Thompson could run -- and win -- by running against NCLB (Fred To School). First off, I can’t realistically imagine anyone winning anything on an education issue right now, no matter how good. Second, running against NCLB might help marginally in the primary -- might -- but would hurt just as much if not more in the general. That’s one reason why Obama and others are holding their fire, and something that Sen. Clinton will have to deal with if she wins the nomination. Via the Fred Fan Blog
