'Fred is listening'

From NBC's Mark Murray
On Monday, we noted that former Senate Majority Leader sent an email to supporters urging fellow Tennessean Fred Thompson to run for president. Frist is up with a new email: "I talked to Fred Thompson last night, really just to share with him the tremendous support that he has received from all of you who have blogged on the Volpac web site over the past 4 days... Now is the time for big ideas ... big, true conservative ideas that rise above the fray. Fred is listening. He will carefully consider running over the next several weeks. His public statements exactly reflect what he is thinking inside."
