As I noted earlier, Fred Thompson appeared at the huge rally for McCain today in Fairfax, VA.  According to CBS News, Thompson had some strong words about Obama:

“Frankly, I think Rev. [Jeremiah] Wright was correct when he says he's just doing what politicians do,” Thompson said about Obama. “That's not the kind of change this country needs.”

Saying Obama “has changed his position on every issue” that’s important, Thompson also accused Obama of not having the requisite experience to be president.

“Barack Obama must be the first fellow in the history of presidential politics who thinks that running for president is a qualification for being president,” Thompson said.
