Trading up: I can say with confidence that Bill Frist would be the best Senate Majority Leader I’ve ever known personally. Frist’s background as a heart transplant surgeon trained at Stanford and Mass General, along with an MD from Harvard and an undergrad degree from Princeton, would give an indication of his intellect and drive. More amazingly, he’s one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet.
Later: Seems official now. Congratulations, Bill. Congratulations to the rest of us.
