WOW. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords posted pictures on Facebook today. These were the first to be publicly released since Jared Lee Loughner attempted to assassinate her in January of 2011. His attack killed six and wounded dozens. Giffords, after taking bullets to the neck and head (through the eye), looks terrific. I’m sure she had the best medical care a congresswoman who happens to be married to an astronaut can get. But still, her recovery is remarkable. I imagine if she does decide to keep running for office … she will never lose another election. I could even see her making a run for the Democratic presidential nomination if she wanted to.
