Fred Thompson's Catch-22

Iowa's The Ottumwa Currier has endorsed Fred Thompson:  

"...despite the pitfalls of the rough and tumble world of politics, the Republican says Washington, D.C. needs a "consistent" conservative to lead the United States into a new direction. Thompson is unapologetic on his views and is a straight-shooter."
... But Fred supporter Erick of RedState writes:

Already whispers have begun that if Fred Thompson can't pull off Iowa, conservatives will need to rally around a candidate and that candidate is most likely John McCain.

Fred's primary problem right now seems to be that people just don't believe he can win.  This, of course, is a Catch-22.  He must finish 3rd in Iowa to demonstrate his electability, yet many Caucus-goers may be hesitant to vote for someone they don't believe can win ...

Early on, Fred tried to stay above the fray, by staying out of the race.  It seemed to work ... for a while.  Today, it seems clear he would have been better off having gotten in the race early, and having worked hard in Iowa.
