Fred Thompson Returning To Showbiz

Former Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson has apparently decided not to run for chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Thompson's former finance chair, B.C. "Scooter" Clippard, tells the Associated Press that the lawyer-turned-actor-turned-Senator-turned-actor-turned Presidential candidate-turned-guy with a PAC has decided to return his career attentions to the business they call show:

"He has some wonderful opportunities back in the television market that probably financially far outweigh being chair of the RNC," Clippard said.
