NEWS ALERT from The Wall Street JournalIs John McCain next?
Nov. 29, 2006 Leaving behind a Republican void in the South, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist said he has put aside plans to run for the White House in 2008. In an interview, the Tennessee Republican said he wanted a "sabbatical from public life," suggesting the 54-year-old heart surgeon-turned-politician could very well return to politics in the future.

Don't hold your breath.
Anyway, thanks for your service Senator. Regardless of your surgeon skills to carve out bleeding hearts.
As a tribute... I offer this video clip from a quick Q&A I had with Frist last year:
Well, to keep his hand in as a surgeon, he needs practice, practice and practice to maintain the qualification. Thus his decision could be seen as highly honorable, and ought to be treated as such.
His last patient, the GOP was seen being wheeled out of Congress on a gurney feet first earlier this month.
