Tommy Thompson Calls It Quits

Last week, Tommy Thompson announced that if he didn't finish first or second in Ames, he would end his presidential campaign. On Sunday, after having come in sixth, the former Wisconsin governor promptly did as promised.

Happily, he did so gracefully rather than as a sore loser: "I respect the decision of the voters," he said.

For the record, while I thought Thompson's campaign was embarrassing, he had a proven record and the right ideas on welfare reform and school choice.
