From the "Its never too early category"

During my morning commute, I saw something that may very well be very popular in the coming years. On the back of a green Oldmobile, festooned with various peace-oriented bumper stickers was... wait for it.

A Hilary Clinton 2008 sticker.

You can buy them here.

Would you think ill of me if were to tell you that I had a Bill Frist '08 sticker on my car?

Because I do...

Seriously? Two weeks after inaguration day and you're already picked out a candidate for 08?

I've been talking-up Frist for two years now. Him and Mitt Romney.

Romney would be an interesting choice. The Dems have seemed to come to the conclusion they need someone from a red-state (Warner, Edwards, Bredesen). I wonder how a Blue State Rep would do.

While Frist would seem to be in the driver seat for 2008, I've never been sold on him. I thought his convention speech was awful. Long, droning, and he has the unfortunate tendency to look like Skeletor in some lighting.

Richard, Are you fucking kidding me?!? Bill Frist, M.D. who can't answer a simple question of how AIDS is transmitted?

Regarding Romney... from a purely tactical perspective, I don't think the Republicans gain much from having a Blue State candidate. It's not like they're going to win Massachusetts, and they have less of a need to appeal to Blue States. The Dems are looking at their Red Staters because they need to start picking off a few if they're going to win.

As for Frist... I don't see why he's necessarily in the driver's seat. In the top tier, sure, but I don't see any reason to rank him ahead of, say, Jeb Bush.

Ensie- Frist was asked if one could contract AIDS through bodily fluids such as saliva, tears and sweat. He stated that while the virus is found in those fluids, it was very unlikely one could contract the virus from any of them. No medical professional has ever challenged the accuracy of his comments, because he was 100% correct. It’s never happened, but theoretically it could. No one can rule it out.

If anyone is guilty of anything, it's organizations like ACT UP that have deliberately distorted his comments.

Richard, He fumbled around not wanting to contradict what many "abstinence only" educators had been idiotically teaching. I agree, it is possible, but SO very unlikely to become HIV positive from tears, sweat, or saliva. So unlikey, it's NEVER happened. He's going to support the most stupid abstinence program ever designed, and it's quite obvious he wants to be president, as he's playing it so political already.
