    Apparently, Fred is going to "kinda-sorta" announce today at 4:30... basically make it clear he is running... and then make his "official" announcement in early September, most likely on Leno next Wednesday (or Thursday).

    Not sure I understand the question.

    Do you mean leaning towards saying he is or isn't going to run?

    Because if that's what you mean, he's DEFINITELY running. 100%, no question whatsoever.

    Read More: F. Thompson Sources: Thompson to announce Sept. 6th
    Fred Thompson's campaign-in-waiting will hold a 4 p.m. conference call today with supporters to brief them on plans for the former Tennessee senator's presidential announcement next week, according to an e-mail obtained by

    Randy Enwright, Thompson's political director, said in the message that they will "discuss the next steps as we move forward as an organization." A Thompson aide confirms that they'll share the news about the long-awaited formal launch. "By the end of the day, we'll have more clarity," the aide said, declining to reveal which day the announcement would take place.

    UPDATE: Still no official confirmation from the campaign, but Thompson sources now confirm that he will announce his candidacy next Thursday, Sept. 6. The launch will include a tour of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida. As expected, Thompson will not appear at the GOP debate in New Hampshire on Wednesday, Sept. 5.

    A Thompson campaign official says that they'll issue a paper statement as to their plans later this afternoon.
