Bill Frist, 2008 Republican Candidate for President

Frist is running, no doubt about it. The Bush machine knifed Trent Lott so Frist could become Majority Leader and get some national publicity. Now Frist isn't running for a third term as Tennessee Senator.

That's because Tennessee's Governor is a Democrat. If Frist runs again, then Phil Bredesen will nominate a Democrat for his seat should Frist win the Presidency. So another Republican must keep that seat.

Job one for Tennessee Democrats - find a candidate who can win that Senate seat.
