Meet the Press Tim Russert asked Tennessee Senator cum House majority leader Bill Frist, Will the Republican Party s position on race change? Frist replied, I think that we have a tremendous opportunity.

Frist concluded by saying, That opportunity is one that I m going to try to seize. I know my caucus is going to try to seize.
