RealClearPolitics: Thompson Could Fill the Missing Slot

By Peter Brown

In most presidential campaigns, after the party nominations are settled, voters experience buyer's remorse: a sense that other candidates might have been a better choice.

What's fascinating about the 2008 Republican race is the widespread buyer's remorse a year before the primaries, almost a conventional wisdom that there must be a better choice for conservatives who dominate the GOP nomination process.
