Frist resume envy


Resume envy: One thing is certain. No one will ever say Bill Frist does not have the smarts to lead the U.S. Senate. I’m sure we will see a pundit parade of his “liabilities” over the coming days, but there won’t be any complaints about his IQ. That his blind trust holdings are probably loaded with shares of a company his father and brother built, HCA, will be the primary “cause for concern,” however. HCA will be portrayed as “Enron” by his detractors, no doubt. Well, it won’t stick as he has some fairly good alibis for why he was not involved directly in any indiscretions in the company’s past. For instance, it’s hard to have a hobby of making shady corporate decisions when you’re busy performing heart transplants.
