After much dragging of feet, the Fred Thompson for President campaign is finally set to launch tonight. But even in his declaration, he is separating himself from the field by officially entering the race directly after the Fox News Republican debate. We take a look at his burgeoning campaign on its official "Day Zero." We check in on the taxi strike with Daily News transit reporter Pete Donohue and the New York Taxi Workers Alliance. Also, economist Robert Frank on inequality and the middle class, we talk to the first gay married couple in Iowa, and take your calls on whether Senator Larry Carig should resign.
