Should Frist Resign as Majority Leader?

Poster Leon H over at seems to think so, and he's obviously not the only one. While Republicans should reserve judgement on Frist about the insider trading charges until more is known, I agree that Frist's leadership of the Senate GOP has been mediocre at best.

As the Party gears up for a tough fight over Sandra Day O'Connor's replacement to the Supreme Court and focuses in on the 2006 elections, the Senate needs a capable captain steering the ship.

So the question arises, who should replace Frist? Two popular suggestions seem to be Jon Kyl and Mitch McConnell. Another name I might suggest would be Sam Brownback. The wildcard might be John McCain. While most would say there's no chance of McCain getting the votes, I never underestimate the guy's ability to surprise us.

This will certainly be a developing story.
