Trent Lott, does Seantor Frist have “the character to be president”?
“I think I’d have to think about that,” said Lott, R-Miss.
Lott said “a lot of good people out there” are thinking about whether to run and that “I probably would lean toward some of the others, let me just put it that way.”
In a new book, “Herding Cats, A Lifetime in Politics,” Lott fingers Frist as one of the “main manipulators” in the events the led to Lott’s fall from power.
(Great book title.)
Lott wrote that Frist’s actions amounted to a “personal betrayal.”
