    Said: " I had to be here for this vote. I couldn't take the chance that my absence could crash our economy "

    Regardless if you agree with her or not she is a champion and deserves everyone's respect. Welcome back Gabby and god bless.

    Rep. Giffords gets the bad news...
    :eusa_eh:
    Months later, Giffords now knows who gunman killed
    Aug 20,`11 - For months after the spasm of violence that shattered her world, Arizona congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was shielded from the wider scope of that January morning, when a gunman shot her in the head, badly wounding her and 12 others outside a Tucson political event.

    I agree. She should step down. We don't know how truly competent she is. Being shot in the brain will clearly effect her decisions, voting etc.

    Did you both think that Strom Thurmond should have retired toward the end, when he didn't seem to to know where he was?
