I based my prediction on the fact that Fred Thompson and John McCain were close when they were in the senate together. Fred Thompson was a supporter of campaign finance reform and often voted with John McCain...Mr. McCain may endorse Fred Thompson if he quits before the South Carolina primary.

Really. I didn't know that. In that case, McCain's endorsement may hurt Fred, not help him. Puts him two degrees from Ted Kennedy. McCain stands for everything I hate about Republicans right now: spending, shamnesty, the gang of 14, appeasing the Dims, etc.

I think the endorsement will help Mr. Thompson in South Carolina. Maybe a McCain endorsement will hurt him elsewhere. I’m sure that Fred Thompson wouldn’t be considering a run if John McCain were still a strong candidate.
