Count Frist Out for 2008
The ranks of the Republican right-wing superstars who thought they'd follow the Bush/Rove plan to win the presidency in 2008 are dwindling. Don't expect George Allen or Rick Santorum to run after failing to hold their Senate seats. Today Bill Frist, who tried to solidify his extremist credentials by diagnosing Terry Schiavo via videotape, announced that he won't seek the presidency.
"In the Bible, God tells us for everything there is a season, and for me, for now, this season of being an elected official has come to a close," he said in a written statement. "I do not intend to run for president in 2008."
