Speaking to a crowd of political supporters last night, President Bush twice stressed the importance of keeping Sen. Bill Frist (R-TN) as Majority Leader after the November elections:

If you want your taxes low, keep Denny Hastert and Bill Frist as leaders of the House and the Senate. …

I want to thank you for helping make sure that Denny Hastert and Bill Frist remain in their positions in the Senate and the House, and I assure you this, we will continue to lead this country with an optimistic, hopeful, positive vision that says to every American, opportunity belongs to you as much as your neighbor.

There’s only one problem: Bill Frist is retiring.
