Already you’re seeing people criticizing outgoing Sen. Majority Leader Bill Frist for the failures in the Senate. Frist certainly deserves to take hits over his inability to control the likes of Sen. John McCain during legislative battles, but without Frist the election might have looked even worse. Tennessee right now is the only strategic hold the Republicans got on Tuesday night, and it was largely because the Frist operation saw Corker’s problems earlier this year, took charge of the campaign and got him back on track. And while some Republicans – Allen, perhaps being the greatest offender – chose not to run on the judges issue, Corker, in fact, did. And he won. That wasn’t an accident.
