Baker has been a mentor to Thompson since before the Senate's Watergate hearings, for which Baker hired Thompson as majority counsel and for which Thompson earned fame for having Baker ask the key question that led to President Richard Nixon's downfall: "What did the president know and when did he know it?"
He's a Howard Baker conservative. A RINO lite.
They are bringing out the big guns, same clown that gave us GW.

I wouldn't say that. Thompson can come across as another beltway insider, however...let's not forget that the main reason he left Washington was because of all the BS that goes on there - he's in the position of being liked well by his fellow Senators but not being quite the "insider" that would make him a negative.
