Former Wisconsin Gov. and Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson is still considering a challenge to Sen. Russ Feingold (D).

In a brief interview Wednesday about the possibility of a Senate run this year, Thompson, a Republican, would only say: "I'm not saying no."

The former governor mused last fall about a potential gubernatorial or Senate run, but if he does mount a campaign this year, it's now almost certain to be a run against Feingold.

I like this match-up.  I like it a lot.  Most analysts right now would consider the Wisconsin seat solidly Dem.  However, if Thompson were to insert himself into the race, it would be a toss-up, possibly even lean Thompson.
