Hatch rides off 

One prediction I didn't make last Saturday was that Mike Hatch would leave the attorney general's office. In retrospect, this makes much more sense; the column in today's PioneerPress was simply a coup de grace. This resgination plus some mending of the fences between AG Lori Swanson and AFSCME will put this all behind them in no time, along with the usual complicity of the Twin Cities media of flushing it down the memory hole. Unlike Chad, I sincerely doubt we've seen the last of Mike Hatch. As the old joke goes, the good die young so Hatch will be around a very long time.
