1. Part of me is sad that Frist had such a horrible 2005.
Edited on Fri Dec-30-05 07:58 PM by nickshepDEM
Mostly because it derailed his presidential bid.

He would be a great candidate... For us Democrats.

He's incredibly boring, horrible on the stump, a pathetic leader, etc... Just about any Democrat could whipe the floor with him.
