Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist’s decision not to run for president leaves even more elbow room in the right of the field for the likes of Kansas Sen. Sam Brownback and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney. Blame Frist’s flip-flop on embryonic stem-cell research and bizarre involvement in the Terri Schiavo case, among other pockmarks on his Senate leadership record. Meanwhile, Brownback was urged to run by fiscal conservative pundit Larry Kudlow this week on National Review Online: “He is an uncommonly moral person, who can make an uncommonly good contribution to the uncommonly sagging postelection Republican fortunes.”
