The New York Times has this report on the move that Frist seems to be making. And here is the AP story. Note that Senators Warner and Alexander and Allen also seem to be aboard.
It is clear that this gambit will work, and Lott will be pushed out. Robert Alts warning about Frists imperfections should be noted, there will be many things to be worked out. My view is, first things first, so to speak.
