Senator Frist's Stem Cell Shift - New York Times

I like how the last paragraph of this article underlines that this is probably a shrewd political grandstand for Frist to gain appeal with moderates. I have to agree, its not like he came out and said, "Lawmakers, especially those who dont know anything about stem cells, shouldnt be making decisions about this issue and the ban should be lifted completely." Then I'd respect him but now I just see it as another political move. Actions speak louder than words, put the money where your mouth is.

Change the headline to "Senator Frists First Presidential Posturing"

I totally agree. I listened to his speech on C-SPAN today. It was just droll! Going on and on in this bloated attempt to separate himself from Bush (in a weak way) so he can begin his 2008 campaign.

If you're going to say stem cells are okay, then don't mince words! He wants the Christian vote while attracting the swing vote.

Like all mindless puppets, Frist is just doing what his political operatives and handlers instruct him to do.

It reminds me of that scene from Chicago, "And yet we both reached for the gun oh yes, oh yes, oh yes we both oh yes we both oh yes, we both reached for the gun, the gun, the gun, the gun oh yes, we both reached for the gun, for the gun."
