Political Ownership

 In Blog

Tonight on Fox News’ Hannaty and Colmes, TN’s outgoing senator, Bill Frist, was interviewed. Frist was asked if, now that his party has lost control of the Senate, if he regrets not running for office again. His answer is one of the best I’ve heard from a politician in years:

“You don’t own this job-you’re only occupying a position.”

Brilliant! This, THIS attitude is how government was intended to run-not for politicians to be lifers and think they own that chair in D.C. Now, don’t get me wrong-I love Bill Frist and I’d love it if he were going to stick around for a while… but more than anything, I love his answer on what he feels the roles of politicians in Washington should be.
