That was a long time ago. As I said, there are two different Hatches just like Lugar. The Hatch after 1992 is far from the one before 1992 , he suddenly tilted or lurched to the left about that time. In a similar way, Lugar was more staunchly conservative until the late seventies. After that he changed and was more 'bipartisan' and apt to compromise, otherwise known as RINO!!
