Former DNC chair McAuliffe says “Fear Fred”

From ABC News:

Fred Thompson’s decision to skip Wednesday’s New Hampshire debate invited ridicule from the Republican ’08ers who view him as a lightweight.

But his thin public record is cold comfort to one Democratic powerbroker.

In fact, it has former DNC Chairman Terry McAuliffe downright nervous.

“There’s not much there. That’s what makes me nervous,” said McAuliffe who remembers toiling for Jimmy Carter when he was trounced by Ronald Reagan.

“I’m never underestimating another B-Movie actor.”

McAuliffe offered his assessment to ABC News just moments after Thompson entered the fray.

Not much to say, just making the post.
