If you absolutely have to get a different bike or frame, look for as much tire clearance as possible.
The suggestions to look at a Trek 520 are good--they will clear at least a 700 x 38 tire. Consider tires that are fat with relatively light sidewalls, as this combination will get you the most ride comfort--Panaracer Pasela, Tioga City Slicker are two good choices.
