Frist Out, Biden In (Again)
Bill Frist is not going to run for president. That's not too surprising considering how poorly he managed to run the Senate. And let's not forget the work that he basically just left for the next Congress. (I think that was the pettiest action that grown up politicians could do. A true American embarassment.) Frist would have gotten clobbered, as I think most GOP Senators would. They were very ineffectual and will only be remembered for their string of failures--fair or not.
Biden, Biden, Biden. I don't think he has a shot. Though he is overly "verbose", I think he'd be a decent president. I saw him give the best political speech I ever heard in 2004. At that point, I don't think I was as cynical toward political speeches so that may explain it. But I appreciated what he had to say more than what Clinton or Obama said at the convention. I respect his public service. He's not in my top three, but isn't far behind. Maybe number 5?
