I think that all the people who thought that Fred Thompson had suddenly become a campaign finance hater are going to be disappointed. From Marc Ambinder, reporting from South Carolina:

And, addressing Monday’s Supreme Court ruling on the McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform act, Thompson said that while he remained a supporter of the bill and its intentions, he thought the court’s decision was sensible because, he implied, the sham issue ad provision "hasn’t worked" as intended.

"I think Congress ought to amend the campaign finance legislation, keep the good parts, and get rid of this part."

Is this what people thought then he said that BCRA "isn’t working?"
