52. no, not for mittens - THOMPSON (fred)
I highly doubt rove will just spend time with his family - most likely scenario is he will be on one of the republic's campaign... but who

consider this: Fred Thompson

- from various articles it's been said Thompson will "officially declare" around Labor Day. Rove's resignation is for end of August, this leaves him free to migrate from bush's brain to thompson's brain

- other articles have hinted Thompson is pretty tight with the bushies, and the bushies are encouraging him to run

and then there's this press release: a coincidence? wouldn't bet on that, talks between thompson and rove have probably been going on for a couple of months...

Fred Thompson Ready To Merge In Iowa
Washington D.C. 8/12/2007 10:52 PM GMT (TransWorldNews)

Past Senator Fred Thompson is planning to make his first Iowa tour as a presidential view next week, a growth that is anticipated to reset the Republican field in the caucus state in the arousal of the GOP straw survey in Ames on Saturday.

"Then the campaign for the caucuses begins," said John Maxwell, chief adviser to U.S. Sen. Charles Grassley, R-Ia. "There are going to be players leaving the stage after Saturday, and so it is going to be a new lineup."

Thompson is likely to officially proclaim his application for the GOP nomination in September
