When Mitt Romney stops in Utah next March as part of his No Apology: The Case for American Greatness tour, he will not only raise a lot of excitement, he will raise a lot of money for a scholarship fund for the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah:
The Hinckley Institute of Politics’ mission is to promote political and civic involvement and to engage university students in the political process. The Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah is a bipartisan institute dedicated to engaging students in governmental, civic and political processes; promote a better understanding and appreciation of politics; and train ethical and visionary students for service in the American political system. Robert H. Hinckley founded the Hinckley Institute of Politics in 1965 with the vision to, “teach students respect for practical politics and the principle of citizen involvement in government.” Since it’s founding, the Hinckley Institute has provided a wide range of programs for students, public school teachers and the general public
The Hinckley Institute was established in 1965 through the generous bequest of the Noble Foundation and Robert H. Hinckley. Robert H. Hinckley served in the Roosevelt Administration as Director of the Civilian Pilot Training Program, Assistant Secretary of Commerce, and Director of Contract Settlement. He later went on to found the American Broadcasting Company in 1946. “Every student a politician” was the dream of Robert H. Hinckley.

Utah is the theme today, so day EIGHT of our Twelve Days of Christmas showcases a Utah homeboy. Singing a rhythmical rendition of the beautiful Angels We Have Heard on High,
here is… Donny Osmond.
The earth has grown old with its burden of care, but at Christmas it is always young,
And its soul full of music breaks the air, when the song of the angels is sung.
