She's not baking cookies.
According to Politico, which seems like an appropriate source for this story, Fred Thompson forced out his campaign manager because he didn't get along with Thompson's wife:
Tom Collamore, the former Altria lobbyist who had been running Fred Thompson's campaign, has resigned . . . . Collamore will stay on as a "senior adviser" to the effort, but with a diminished role. Accounts vary as to what exactly happened, but Collamore was reportedly unhappy with the level of involvement of Thompson's wife, Jeri . . . .Digby, who read Politico so that I don't have to, says:
The press gave Bill and Hillary Clinton such a hard time for her involvement in his political life, and here we have alleged traditional values candidates Giuliani and Frederick of Hollywood with second and third wives on the front lines whom they are just as proud as punch to allow to run roughshod over their campaigns. Rudy is so attached to Judy that he wants her in cabinet meetings.Digby also says:
It will be interesting to see if the press finds this as fascinating as John Edwards' haircuts and Hillary Clinton's cleavage.No: It won't, and they won't.
