Frist's Presidential Hopes DOA

Ending what I always thought was a non-starter, Bill Frist has announced he will not seek the Republican nomination for president in 2008.

Talkingheads seem to think he got the message in the GOP midterm drubbing but I think he never had much of a shot to begin with and what little he may have had was washed down the tubes when he not only took the wrong side on the Terrie Schiavo case, but politicized his medical opinion by diagnosing her (from brief video footage) as NOT being in a persistent vegetative state. An autopsy later proved Frist wrong and also declared his presidential aspirations as DOA.
