US President Pat Robertson?

Evangelist Pat Robertson indicated Tuesday that if Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist expects backing of religious conservatives for a possible 2008 presidential bid, he had better get President Bush's judicial nominees confirmed by the Senate, or at least voted on.

"It is the ultimate test," Robertson said at the National Press Club. "He cannot be a leader and allow Democrats to do what they did in the last session."

Robertson, founder of the Christian Coalition and head of the Christian Broadcasting Network, said he's also worried about Middle East peace efforts.

"I do not believe the state of Israel will be secure if it has a Palestinian state in its heart," Robertson said. A Palestinian state, he said, would have the ability to import weapons to groups in the country that have not agreed to the peace process.
