Amid speculation as to wether or not Vice President Dick Cheney will be dropping off the 2004 ticket, things may have become a little clearer.
Frist called the visit (to a civil rights memorial) a sacred pilgrimage. It also was one in a series of "Kodak moments" the Tennessee transplant
surgeon has strung together as he positions himself for what colleagues say will be a run for the White House in 2008.
Frist heard such speculation in Washington when he invited his former patients to the Capitol for a fall reunion, and he heard it in Iowa and New
Hampshire when he showed up for the recent political contests there. Amid the Republican chatter about President Bush possibly replacing Vice
President Dick Cheney, Frist's name has come up as a potential No. 2.
On January 23, 2004 ATSNN reported a rumor about Frist replacing Cheney. What better way to step into a presidential run than out of the spotlight of
Vice President. Frist has said he will not run for re-elction in 2006 for Senate Majority Leader. He said he had no plans for anything, but friends
and political insiders have claimed that he will run for Presidency. Condoleezza Rice is reported to be the number one replacement for Cheney, which
could set up a Rice against Clinton for 2008.
