Last night, I met former Senator Bill Frist outside a restaurant here in Nashville. We were both with family celebrating our birthdays (his is apparently today). He was pretty nice and engaging, and the relaxedness of it made a typical Nashville/southern encounter. My brother was there and said he recognized Sen. Frist too, but he thinks it was from that Super Bowl commercial Frist did with James Carville.
It reminded me of meeting another senator (and a president) just a few blocks away last year. Jeez, I hope it doesn’t sound like I constantly rub elbows with the GOP elite. Because I don’t. In a completely unrelated story, watch out for some posts from me at the end of the week from CPAC 2009.
