Thompson Adds
to Team

Likely presidential candidate Fred Thompson today hired veteran political spokesman Todd Harris to be his new communications director, finally tapping an experienced campaign hand to coordinate his message, a campaign adviser said.

A former spokesman for Ariz. Sen. John McCain's 2000 campaign, Harris also served as communications director for former Florida governor Jeb Bush and California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. He replaces Linda Rozett, who was let go last week.

Harris will oversee a communications shop in flux. Spokeswoman Burson Snyder left the campaign last week, and was replaced with Jim Mills, a former Fox News producer on Capitol Hill.

I wish he'd stick to television. I'm so tired of this "is he running or is he not" game.

Fred can hire anyone he wants, including his wife's tits, it won't make him less of an empty suit!
