Frist backs away from Bush

I enjoyed this opening to Robert Novak's latest column:
In recent national television appearances, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist backed away from unequivocal support of President Bush in what Republican insiders viewed as preparation for a 2008 presidential run.
Frist has not exactly been Mr. Reliable himself, and I think a lot of conservatives started backing away from him months ago. If he thinks he still has a shot at the 2008 Republican Presidential nomination (and Novak does not imply that this is what Frist's move is about), I think he is deluding himself.
