That's not the kind of decisiveness one wants in a leader and the scientific community is united in that fact.
Hatch is hedging because he doesn't want to lose another primary race, like his failed 1992 effort to unseat Senator Elaine Szymoniak, and that's what would happen if The Pickle or The Big Lug Nut decide to run.

In addition, Hatch has personally benefited from tax credits ala Rozanne, err Taxanne Conlin and will continue to do so thanks to a new law that expands the amount of Historic Rehab Credits
