Frist Job on the Line for Executive President

Senator Majority Leader Bill Frist commented he had more arm twisting to do with Senators McCain, Warner and Graham to get them in line with the President’s plans on use of restricted evidence, hearsay and coerced testimony.

Getting his GOP members in line "is a fundamental challenge from a leadership standpoint," said Frist.

Just last week, the President implied if his generals are wrong on the ground in Iraq, he has the wrong people working for him.

If Frist cannot strong arm the three senators with military records on this issue, the President might conclude he has the wrong head party official in the Senate. Bush wants his way, and expects his political compadres to step in line.
