Candy Crowley just informed me that Fred Thompson had a "bout with cancer" but that he's "cancer free."
I'm not one who thinks a candidate's health situation is especially important, but obviously there's not going to be a lot of honesty about Thompson's cancer.
Thompson has indolent lymphoma. It's incurable. It will kill him, if something else doesn't first. It may not kill him very soon. He may live many years. But he's not "cancer free."
