You can call the Thompson campaign a lot of things: lackluster, uninspiring, boring, half-hearted, half-assed, ill-conceived, stillborn, dead-on-arrival, a waste of everyone's time. You might even call it unsuccessful. But remember one thing. He beat Giuliani in five out of the six Republican primaries. And consider this as well: Giuliani is supposed to be a serious contender, a far more legitimate candidate than Thompson ever was.
