Fun times at the MTC » What do former Utah Senate President Michael Waddoups, a Republican, and failed 2012 gubernatorial candidate Peter Cooke, a Democrat, have in common?

They are both going to become mission presidents for the LDS Church somewhere in the world later this year.

Waddoups, who is stepping down from the Legislature, accepted a call to be a mission president a couple of months ago. Cook just received his call.

The assignments for new mission presidents will be revealed in March.

Their transition from politician to mission president is not unusual. One politico told me it’s the LDS Church’s way of sending Mormon political junkies to detox.
