LOS ANGELES (AP) - Former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson of Tennessee continues to act like he's going to run for president.

He was on "The Tonight Show" and said he'd like to be president.

Thompson said he wasn't ready to make any announcements on Jay Leno's couch, but made a point to mention the Web site for his political committee. When asked by Leno about his reaction to the political waters, Thompson said he found them "warm."

He's formed a presidential exploratory committee and is expected to join the Republican race this summer.
