Fred Thompson stops, smells roses


Burning up the campaign trail, including three stops in as many weeks, Fred Thompson was just about to ramp up his campaign earlier today. Instead of making his way to the Rotund Room where he was scheduled to speak, he stopped to smell some roses that were left for a guest at the hotel front desk. “These red roses smell really good,” he explained in a five-minute speech to a desk clerk, “I’ll bet they’re a lot more conservative than Mitt Romney.”
