Governor Frist?He's hoping to redeem his image, see:
Sources in Washington and Tennessee say Frist, who will turn 55 next month, is leaning heavily toward a run for the governor’s office, where he could gain executive experience that might position him to try for the presidency in either 2012 or 2016.After his dismal record in the Senate, he's hoping this will erase the lingering bad taste he leaves in his party faithful, considering how he handed the Senate to the Democrats.
Let's not forget the lingering questions about his stock ownership in Hospital Corporation of America which was founded by his family.
And of course, there's the kitty killer issue:
"Desperate, obsessed with my work, I visited the various animal shelters in the Boston suburbs, collecting cats, taking them home, treating them as pets for a few days, then carting them off to the lab to die in the interests of science. And medicine. And health care. And treatment of disease. And my project.I just don't know how he expects the public to forget all these, especially since based on his Senate managerial abilities, it's doubtful he would do a better job as governor.
