Thompson's Campaign Train Grinding to a Crawl

Our favorite political headline of the day, courtesy of Congressional Quarterly:
Some House Backers of Thompson Are Starting to Lose the Faith
The CQ story explains that Thompson's presidential campaign has been so lackluster that even his House allies are asking hard questions about viability of the candidate. Here's the money quote from CQ:
"I think he’s kind of done a belly flop,” said an estranged Thompson backer who indicated he will not pull his public support before the “Super Tuesday” primaries. “We’ll just wait till after Feb. 5 because I think he’s going to get beat.”
No word yet on the flailing Thompson from Tulsa Rep. John Sullivan, another House member who is supporting the former Tennessee senator.

I wonder whom the National Right to Life Committee will bestow their endorsement upon after Fred's out?
