Instead of Frist "rising above the fray" how about getting into the fray and kicking some butt???
A whole lot of people are sick of the turn the other cheek crowd, it's time for a Rudy.
However, as a February 2007 New York Times article pointed out, "Mr. Giuliani has been alone [among Republican candidates] in saying that such a strategy may not succeed, potentially providing him cover should the situation in Iraq deteriorate further. And he has put the strategy in a broader context that plays down the importance of Iraq."
If anyone tries to go negative on Hillary or Obama they'll be hammered by the media. The "we're not as bad as them" strategy got us crushed in 2006; it's long past time we returned to being the party of ideas.
