Thompson: I would turn down VP offer
By Bob Cusack from

Former Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) said he would not accept an offer from Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) to be his running mate. During an interview on "Hannity and Colmes" that aired Thursday, the 2008 presidential primary candidate said he is not interested in being on the GOP ticket. "That's not in the cards," Thompson said. "That's not what I want. Well...and I don't think that call [from McCain] would ever happen. I think John needs somebody else. I would advise him if he asked me that he needs someone else, of a different profile. The presidency is the only job in town that's worth going through what you got to go through to get it, including the vice presidency...."
