Lettera aperta a Fred Thompson. Quin Hillyer, su The American Spectator.
(...) Stop coasting, sir. Start sharpening your language. Start working on your delivery of formal speeches: What works in one-minute radio commentaries and on radio talk shows does not work from behind a podium. What works from the back of a pickup truck does not work in front of people in suits eating dinner.
Can you still win this nomination? Definitely. But right now you are squandering not just your own presidential aspirations, but the faith that conservatives put in you this past spring when you assured us that you were "the one." It's called "running" for the presidency, sir, and right now all you're doing is ambling. You can do better. And you better start soon.
