Frist for veep.

"Bill Frist is beginning to look like the John Edwards of the Republican Party—a presidential candidate who is running for vice president, even if he doesn't yet know it." Aside from his lack of charisma and his failure to accomplish much of anything in the Senate, Frist's candidacy will also suffer from the fact that he's a Senator, something many people erroneously think to be a plus. The last Senator to be elected President was Lyndon Johnson. Failures since then include Ted Kennedy, Bob Dole and John Kerry. (Whereas governors elected President since Johnson include Carter, Reagan (with an asterisk), Clinton and Bush.)

On the other hand, he's got Karl Rove in his corner. So best not to count him out yet.
