Blair Bumped Blogger Brian
Senator Hatch showed up at Midday Edition with plenty on his mind. One topic discussed on the show is one being kicked around the blogosphere. Is it time for Senator Hatch to retire? There is worthwhile commentary at Utah Politcs that includes a plug for Tim Bridgewater Brian's blog also hit that topic today as well as many other Hatch related issues. KCPW asked the Senator if the reason he wanted another term was so he'd be around for a Supreme Court appointment. Hatch's response left the distinct impression a court appointment may be one of the reasons he's staying in the Senate. Some also speculate (okay, I speculate) that he's keeping the seat warm for Mike Leavitt so Mike can finish his time with W and not have to challenge a Republican incumbent in a primary when he gets back to UT.
