    I watched her special on 20/20 I guess she has to decide by May if she is well enough to run. I am really pulling for her. I know she is not a rep but I really hope she gets her miracle and she is well enough to run in May. She has come a long way.:clap2: Her husband is fantastic he took his vows like your supposed too. In sickness and in health.

    Good post. I don't think she'll be ready by this may. But I could see her running again down the road. The irony is she's a blue dog democrat.

    edit: And yeah her husband really did take his vows seriously, guy has some class.

    I saw that so clearly. Class act indeed! That's why humanity is amazing. Pull aside all the fog and covers over humanity and the best of it shines through.

    Gabby Gifford should simply retire. It would be in her best interest and in the best interest of the people who elected her to serve.

    Maybe the strive to be in the race is a great motivator for her. Anything to make her well again I am for even though I would not vote for her ( cant any way dont live in AZ)

    It's remarkable what she has accomplished. A very tough lady and a wonderful husband who stuck with her. Good for them both. As far as running for her seat again, I think she will have the integrity to only run if she is capable of doing the job properly.

    75 year old Pima Co. sheriff Dupnik who insulted the people of Arizona calling them bigots and made a fool out of himself blaming talk radio for the tragic shooting faces re-election next year if the recall movement doesn't get him first.

    Then the right wing terrorist who shot her would be closer to getting his way.... better chance for a Republican to win the seat.
