    Outside of the Sunday political talk shows I rarely watch US commercial tv, but made an exception Monday night to watch Gabby Giffords first interview since the shooting. The program documented her recovery progress, and from a scientific perspective, it is remarkable, but it's also true that she has had access to the very best of US healthcare, to which many of her constituents do not. Noteworthy that it aired on the same day as the SCOTUS decision to review the healthcare law. There are several clips at this link.

    Fox News are complaining and, although saying the interview was 'warming and inspirational', claim it was was
    ruined by a gratuitous attack on tea party opponents of health care reform and on Sarah Palin

    Gabby didn't look 100% though - not even close and there's talk of her standing in the election to hold onto her seat. But they're a very political family and I hope they have her recovery at the top of the list.

    LOS ANGELES — When Gabrielle Giffords announced that she would step down from Congress in January, she did not shy away from the possibility that she would one day run for office again.
    I will return,” she said, “and we will work together for Arizona and this great country.”
    Two months later, at the urging of her most fervent supporters and top advisers, Ms. Giffords appears to be holding on to much of the nearly $1 million left in her campaign account, in order to leave the door open for a potential run for the House or the Senate in the next campaign cycle.
    Much of the money in Ms. Giffords’s coffers came in after she was nearly killed in a shooting rampage in Tucson last year. In the weeks since her resignation, she has made no move to return the money to donors or turn it over to the county Democratic Party for use in the race to succeed her in Congress.
    “There’s a lot of people, including me, who are hoping that she hangs on to the majority of the money she has because we want to see her run again,” said Michael McNulty, a longtime supporter and confidant of Ms. Giffords.

    I think this was on the cards - it'll be interesting to see who'll replace her ... Democrat or Republican? I have, kinda, a personal interest in this as I have a daughter working in Arizona. She's not politically minded but her exposure to American politics in Oregon, New Mexico and now Arizona has turned her into a natural Democrat - by default - because Republicans ARE loonytoons she exclaims!

    One positive thing to come out of this horror:

    More than 120 A-list philanthropists honored Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband, Capt. Mark Kelly, at Vic & Anthony's to help Memorial Hermann announce Revolutionizing Neuroscience, a $100 million program campaign for which $63 million has already been raised. Source

    Your daughter is on the money on the R’s. and the Arizona variety are particularly distasteful, between Senator Jon Kyl, Governor Jan Brewer, and America’s toughest Sheriff Joe Arpaio, John McCain seems a moderate.
