I got a glum message from one of my folks within Team Fred earlier today:
I don’t know any more than anyone else, but I’m following the lead of a few other people by cleaning out my desk.
Carl Cameron thinks there will be an announcement tomorrow morning. Don’t bet on it, or maybe you should because he’s probably wrong. There was a mention of “meetings” tomorrow. Whatever that means. There’s even a theory floating around that FDT might not even bother with an announcement. He simply fades away.
FWIW, some FredHeads put the the HQ phone number on the weblog and people started calling… Die-hards calling staffers is way too circular and doesn’t mean much. Now, if 10,000 new FredHeads signed up in the next few hours (ideally all from Florida) that would mean something.
But then I heard from this person that they had been given an update: Thompson is still in Tennessee at the hospital with his mother, and he had not made any decision on the campaign front as he tends to her. Staff is being told to plan on business as usual tomorrow (Tuesday).
