Frist Won't Run for President 

Tennessee Senator Bill Frist has issued an announcement that he is not running for president in 2008. Frist was recently voted "least popular Republican" in a national poll of leading politicians, which may or may not have had anything to do with his announcement. For more on Frist's announcement, see the Flyer's Political Beat.

In other news, Boy George has announced that he will not serve as Secretary of Defense if asked, and David Gest is announcing that he has decided not to run for Mayor of Koskiusko, Mississippi.
