GOOD SOLDIERING:

Frist looking at governor run in 2010 (Sam Youngman, 1/17/07, The Hill)

Former Majority Leader Sen. Bill Frist (R-Tenn.) is seriously considering a gubernatorial run in Tennessee in 2010, possibly setting up a White House bid further down the road.

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.

"It's a done deal," said a source with knowledge of Frist's plans.


Outstanding--he can best serve the Party by developing it in his own state. Rudy Giuliani, Steve Forbes, Mitt Romney, Duncan Hunter, Tommy Thompson, Bill Owens, and Mike Huckabee should likewise take on tough statewide races.

Romney, Owens, Thompson, and Huckabee already have won statewide races - they were governors.

On a related note McCain should take on a position that gives him experience managing something larger than a senate staff.

Yes, that's why they need to be running now.
