On Senator Orrin Hatch
From today's Tribune: Yucca squabble aside, Huntsman backs Hatch as senator The Tribune wondered why Governor Jon Huntsman Jr. would back Senator Orrin Hatch when: -They have big differences over the storage and transportation of nuclear waste (a huge issue for the Governor) -They have big differences over who should lead the Utah Republican Party. The Tribune mentions that Senator Hatch may chair the Finance Committee, but I can't believe Governor Huntsman is backing the Senator because now after three decades he might have finally tripped into the right place to be of service to Utah. I think that argument doesn't hold water. The Governor isn't that naive. Senator Hatch hopes the voters are, but the Governor is looking at something else.
