    I was wondering when this was going to happen.

    I wish her nothing but the best in continuing to recover.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Wish her the best, but thought that she should have been removed after the shooting. She was incapacitated and couldn't perform her job.

    I'm sure she was a nice lady but because she was a DimoRat, a bad congress critter. Right choice in resigning and I wish her well.

    I have a hunch that she didn't like how the party was using her right now.

    probably not, she's a "blue dog Democrat" who use to be a Republican, sure she realized how much she was being used.

    I'm amazed at how well she's doing, but she still isn't ready to return to Congress, and she may not ever be able to return to a political career.


    She still talks faster and clearer than John Conyers.
