Oh, for a crystal ball!

By {screen_name}
Might be just what Josh Penry is thinking these days. Penry is, you'll recall, Mesa and Delta County's young man in a hurry, enough so that he's running for the state Senate after one term in the House. Had he known that Joe Stengel would be forced to give up his post as minority leader in the House, Penry might have stuck in the House and made a leadership bid there. Of course, this business of guessing what a crystal ball might have foretold is dicey at best, but it would have been interesting to see how the House would have greeted a leadership bid by a young western Colorado type who shares many of those East Slope GOP values without the water-grab compulsion. Not picking a horse in a nonexistent race here, but the thought did occur. Just wondering, really.
