    The Democrats can thank Nancy Pelosi for their defeat in the US House of Representatives last week. Here in Utah we'll gladly take Lockhart over Pelosi every day of the week!

    Wow- Nattering Nabobs of Negativism already on the site- rarely has anything really negative been said about Becky, and if you don't like what your elected Rep. did in their leadership meeting, elect new ones!

    All genders are created equal, but some are more equal than others? The legislature is now "Animal Farm?" Thanks for your insight, Ms. Orwell.

    Say goodbye to decisions based on reason. Lockhart and her cronies are emotional dragoons, willing to rake anyone through the mud to get gain.
    What exactly did Clark do to get ousted? He refused to use partisan rhetoric. Basically, he walked the walk, but did not talk the talk. How dare he not back up his actions with bombastic, unfounded accusations and threats. It's not what you do while in the Utah legislature that makes you successful, it's how you do it, even though the legislative result is the same.
