Why Fred Thompson is better than Bill Clinton

With Billy Jeff "BJ" Clinton, his campaign staff worked to silence his old girlfriends. Especially the ones who wanted to bring lawsuits against him.

With Fred Thompson, all his ex-girlfriends want to campaign for him.

IN the battle for the women’s vote, Fred Thompson has a secret weapon against Hillary Clinton - the legions of former girlfriends who still adore him and who want him to be president.

The Hollywood actor and former Tennessee senator racked up an impressive list of conquests during his swinging bachelor days in the 1990s, but he appears to have achieved the impossible and kept their friendship and respect.

Lorrie Morgan, a country singer who dated Thompson and considered marrying him in the mid1990s, told The Sunday Times: “I couldn’t think of a bad word to say about Fred if somebody put a gun to my head.
...
“I was single for a long time and yep I chased a lot of women,” Thompson told them with a grin. “And a lot of women chased me. And those who chased me tended to catch me.”
...
“It says a lot about his character that his ex-wife and ex-girlfriends think he is fabulous,” said [Georgette Mosbacher, a leading Republican fundraiser who dated Thompson after Morgan and remains a good friend]. “Character is important in a president.”
