Political debate amusing

It is with amused interest that I watch the debates on redistricting here in our fine state. The responses of Democrats are especially interesting.

First, they tell us we should look at the individual, not the party affiliation. Now, Democratic leaders have a fit if it looks like one of their incumbents may be forced into a new district.

If Utah's Democrats really want to stand on who they are as an individual, they should be able to use their record as an incumbent and try to retain their seat, even if the boundaries must change due to changing demographics. Of course, the same holds true for worried Republicans as well.
