Bill Frist,

politician and physician from Tennessee, became U.S. Senate majority leader in January, after Trent Lott resigned the post amid a furor over racially provocative remarks he made in December at Strom Thurmond's 100th birthday celebration. President Bush looked to Frist, a relative newcomer to politics who is known for his calm demeanor and his organizational skills, to promote Medicare reform.
