Frist touts accomplishments, calls for bipartisanship
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Retiring Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist touted the Senate's accomplishments under his leadership Wednesday and said the next Congress must work and collaborate -- especially on Iraq -- after years of partisan rancor.

Frist trumpeted his leadership on implementing tax cut policies, supporting the war on terror, initiating prescription drug coverage, confirming conservative judges, passing an energy bill, and fighting HIV/AIDS.

The Tennessee Republican and potential presidential nominee also advised his colleagues to seek a bipartisan course in the next Congress.

"Washington must now work together in a bipartisan way--Republicans and Democrats--to outline the path to success in Iraq," Frist said in a statement. "When it comes to solving our Iraq policy challenges, we all have the responsibility to be partners, not just partisans."
