<< Once again, Senator Hatch was on Sunday Fox T.V. News,
caving in to his friend Bill Clinton. The Senator, in essence,
said if Clinton wants to make the pro-Affirmative Action
Bill Lann Lee the nation's top civil rights prosecutor,
he should do it "gently."
In other words, Clinton ought not give Lee a recess
appointment but perhaps an "acting" appointment which would
not be so "insulting" to the Senate.
Little wonder Bill Clinton and Teddy Kennedy like him --
political "patsies" like Orrin Hatch are to be treasured.

Orrin Hatch is hardly a 'political patsie' of Bill Clinton or anyone else. He
has adamantly stated that this is the most corrupt administration in history
and has steadily put pressure on the attorney general to install an
independent counsel to investigate the white house. He wouldn' t do that if
he were a political patsy. He certainly has changed over the years, his
approach that is, not his beliefs. I don't believe that insulting your own
team is the way to get them to do the things you want them to do. You can
catch a lot more flies with honey than you can with derogatory statements.
