 Wall St. Journal - by Ben Casselman

Sunday, John Podesta, who is helping to lead Mr. Obama's transition team, singled out the Utah leases as one decision the Obama administration might try to reverse. "They want to have oil and gas drilling in some of the most sensitive, fragile lands in Utah that they're going to try to do right as they [are] walking out the door. I think that's a mistake," Mr. Podesta said on "Fox News Sunday."
