Fred Thompson Debating Conservative Philosophy

This is cool even though tort reform is not one of my favorite topics.

Conservatives will have to judge for themselves the merits of Thompson's arguments. But what we're witnessing here is the rare instance of a potential presidential candidate debating political philosophy with the some of the nation's top conservatives (in this case, NR's Ramesh Ponnuru), as opposed to rival candidates. And it's a substantive debate -- not the usual aide-written stuff most candidates slap their name to. My guess is that conservatives will love this, whether they agree with Thompson or not, because so few candidates are willing (or able) to do it.

It's more a debate on federalism. That's the overriding issue between Ponnuru and Thompson. And while I agree with the blogger you quoted, that this is cool because so few candidates do this, I can't understand why progressives, independents, or anyone else wouldn't also find this notable. I think this exchange is really to Thompson's credit.
