Olympia Snowe is the only sitting Republican senator still in play, but former Republican Leader Bill Frist says he would vote for the Baucus bill if he were still a senator.
"That's what leadership's all about," he told Karen Tumulty at TIME.
No sign yet that Frist's arguments will sway any of his former colleagues. But pretty surprising stuff, and a pretty good talking point for the White House on an otherwise dismal day.
Stay tuned for Snowe (and Wyden?)
