Valley politico: Election changes nothing

Last year, Utah enacted a first-in-the-nation law requiring that fetuses receive anesthesia or painkillers before elective abortions starting at 20 weeks gestation. Nine months later, the only licensed clinic providing those abortions in the state said no changes have been made in how doctors perform the procedures.

Washington D.C. is going to look a lot like it did the last four years, according to Valley political insider Mike O’Neil.

Besides a few changes in President Obama’s cabinet, O’Neil said Capitol Hill will have the same cast of characters.

“We’re going to have a Democratic Senate, and a Republican House, which is exactly what he had yesterday. And the same president, and the same problems.”

O’Neil said the most notable shakeup in Washington will be what happens with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who could be running for president in 2016.

“Hillary Clinton is the obvious Democratic nominee,” O’Neil said. “She goes out after an almost unblemished record, though I think there will probably be issues raised about Benghazi at the tail end.”

As for the Republican nominee four years from now, O’Neil expects it will be Congressman Paul Ryan.
