Senator Orrin Hatch
Senator Orrin Hatch wrote in to the Tribune Sunday to give his side of the story on the Senate filibusters. I don't know what would have prompted Senator Hatch to defend himself like that. Is he feeling the heat of the "retirement debate"? Or was he just feeling awnry. Whenever a politician is willing to go on record and explain himself, that's a great thing. But it doesn't seem to be his style. Perhaps others would disagree with my thoughts on that. Reach Upward has a very interesting and worthwhile post up about Senator Hatch, his tenure, and his possible future.
