William Harrison Frist is a physician and politician. Having received his Doctor of Medicine degree from the Harvard Medical School, Frist has an extensive background in the study and practice of health care and policy. However, Frist, a second-term Republican who had long been considering a race for the White House, recently said he would instead take a ''sabbatical'' from politics.

Frist was the Congressional spokesman during the 2001 anthrax attacks. In 2003, Frist was able to push the third major tax cut under the Bush Administration. In a speech in 2004, Frist spoke of his background as a doctor and expressed the desire to change several things related to the American health care system. He described President Bush's policy regarding stem cell research as "ethical." He is also in favor of imposing limits on the amount of money awarded to plaintiffs in medical malpractice cases.

Frist has been pushing for a bill aimed at fighting bio-terrorism. Its aim was to establish new programs to protect the nation from health threats by "terrorists and foreign nations utilizing biological and chemical weapons." Recently, he spoke in favor of the recently passed Medicare prescription drug benefit and the of legislation providing for Health Savings Accounts.

Frist has been married to his wife, Karyn, since 1982. They have three sons: Harrison, Jonathan, and Bryan.
