Don't "coat" Senator Dan Coats with any paint of The Hoosier State of Indiana into a corner as he looks at the future. Which is what Albertans just did electorally by changing from one governing party to another in the May Vth provincial election. As the only ever United States Senator to retire from office & then come back to his old seat after a few years, the Senator knows its time to "pass the baton" to Indianans of the future with younger & fresher ideas & so just like another famous son of Indiana you may have heard of who recently retired named David Letterman, Dan makes a classy retirement announcement just this past March XXIVth that he won't seek re-election & includes youth in his comments.
"I have concluded that the time has come to pass this demanding job to the next generation of leaders."
