She's actually up against a Democratic incumbent.

And a pony.

As nice as it is that she is running, she is still a Republican, who, if she wins, will be taking a House seat away from a Democrat. I'm sorry, but we have to defeat her. We cannot let House Republicans gain any seats.

I would not attack her at all though. She has a great back story and seems to not be corrupt. From a Democratic perspective, that race needs to be framed as, "look at how awful the Republican led House has been. We can't permit them to gain another seat. Vote for the Democrat Jim Matheson!" As much as we support women and minorities, she is just on the wrong side of the aisle.

She's actually whiter in the first picture...

Great story - pleased she is progressing.

Care to expand what you mean by that?

What's wrong with the picture?

That's like saying all those pictures people have of the First Lady and they only wanna focus on the few in which she is "frowning."

Big deal. She is not smiling but in action. I don't see a problem with the picture.

How's that been working out for you since Obama's policies have been enacted? In, say, November 2010?

That was before the House Republicans showed their behinds and their approval numbers hit record lows.

No big deal. She's running in a state in which LDS members are most often elected to public service. All politics is local. Why would I in Chicago or someone in Ohio, New Jersey, etc., care about this particular election?
