Fred Thompson for Prez?

The Thompson trial balloon seems to be gaining steam.  ... The Hill reports:

Former Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker (R-Tenn.) is contacting powerbrokers in the Republican Party to build support for a 2008 presidential campaign by his one-time protégé, former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.).

Will he be the "law and order" candidate?  (Bad pun intended...)
