There will be a newsconference at 12PM CST where Senate Majority Leader, Dr. Bill Frist, will pull out of the race for President.

While most thought that Frist was a longshot to begin with, he had some things going for him: Conservative credentials (minus the stem cell flip flop) and his background as a doctor which was different and appealing. Frist also has had the most success fundraising outside of the Big 3.

This move leaves Frist's Iowa staff- Brian Kennedy and Marcus Branstad- without a home. Some have speculated that Kennedy will challenge Bruce Braley for the IA-01 seat in 2008.

Frist's departure is good news for a second tier candidate like Mike Huckabee or Sam Brownback. It will allow them to shine more in what was to be an already crowded field.

More on the Frist announcement later- with a line change.

Pataki was just on Fox News live in Iraq. He said he was going to be in Des Moines next week. WTF? Didn't anybody bother to tell him that it is over?

    The Cooler line is an exclusive creation of Caucus Cooler and will be updated as the political environment changes.
    It is an unscientific assessment of the Iowa Caucus (not the Presidential race as a whole) from an insiders view at the given time. The line IS NOW mathematically accurate but is NOT intended for gambling purposes. Information may only be reproduced with credit to the Caucus Cooler.
