    Lockhart will do a GREAT JOB and its nice to have someone who doesn't get so entrenched as Clark was.

    The big trick this year at the legislature will be using the revenues fairly and wisely while NOT raising taxes (especially on a PARTICULAR GROUP)like they did last year with the smokes tax!

    Not hard since they have no substance.

    Nothing really will change. This political party is arrogant and does not respect the voters because they know that they will always be re-elected and in control. Everyone wanted change in Washington, but not change here. Don't you see the hypocrisy?
