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.
 

YAHOO

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.

Sure, let him run.
First press confrence:
" Sen. Frist, during your medical school days, you would often troll the shelters collecting stray cats & dogs for additional 'cadavar' practice. Seeing as pet shelters don't normally put dead animals up for adoption, how many hundreds of pets did you send to their death? And as a follow up, did they hiss & bark as soon as they saw you trolling the cages?"

I've seen some prominent RNC Repubs LAUGHING on TV about this as an internet rumor. One speculated the strategy was to leak it to get the press off Cheney/Halliburton. Makes sense, and it seems to have worked.

Meanwhile Cheney is still VP and Halliburton still making government money. And we all talk about Frist.

Like it really matters. Cheney won't be held responsible, nor will the rest of the Bush administration for their criminal activities.

But speaking of Frist. Anyone want to take a look into the mind of someone who adopts animals just to carve them up? This person should be detained, not functioning in society muchless our Government...

Halliburton, meanwhile, is contending with two new scandals. Last week, the Wall Street Journal reported that the company had overcharged the government by sixteen million dollars on a bill for the cost of feeding troops at a military base in Kuwait. And last month the company made an astonishing confession: two of its employees, it said, had taken kickbacks resulting in overcharges of $6.3 million, in return for hiring a different Kuwaiti subcontractor in Iraq. Halliburton said that the employees, whose names it declined to reveal, had been fired and the funds returned. The day after this disclosure, the Pentagon awarded yet another contract to Halliburton, worth $1.2 billion, to rebuild the oil industry in southern Iraq.
