“My name is Dru Davis and I am Wendy Davis’s daughter. I hate that I feel the need to write this, but I have been reading and hearing so many untrue things about my mom and I want to set the record straight. And sadly I feel the need to be crystal clear on the malicious and false charge of abandonment as nothing could be further from the truth. My mom has always shared equally in the care and custody of my sister and me… I can tell you that my mom was a remarkable mother and continues to be so to this day. She was there on my first day of school and my last, and so many days in between. She never missed a school performance or a parent-teacher conference. Even if that meant she had to miss something else important. My sister and I were always her first priority. She was there when I needed her and even when I thought I didn’t. My mom was my Brownie Troop leader. I still remember camping out in the backyard with my troop after our trip was cancelled because of bad weather. She was also my field hockey team mom during my senior year of high school, not to mention that she went with me to every single field hockey camp, tryout, program that I ever had. She helped me sort through college possibilities, helped me with my applications and visited colleges with me.”
Dru Davis, daughter of Texas state Senator Wendy Davis, and her older sister, Amber, on Tuesday shared open letters addressed to their fellow Texans after repeated attacks against their mother’s biography. (via kileyrae)
It’s sad that this makes my heart hurt, that Dru has to do this, but I am so glad that she did!

McDonnell’s indictment comes in the midst of the General Assembly’s annual legislative session and is likely to accelerate efforts to overhaul the state’s ethics and gifts laws, long considered some of the most lax in the nation. McAuliffe and leading state lawmakers in both parties have both already said they support such changes.
The criminal prosecution also marks stunning crash for a politician who was considered for the Republican vice presidential nomination in 2012 and just a year ago was considered a credible future for president.”

What do the numbers look like? http://politi.co/LBIbnI
Of course Hillary Clinton is now ahead of Chris Christie this week (and thankfully so… )
But, there’s only one poll that counts and it’s on election day and that day is over two and a half years away.
I mean, I love Hillary’s chances, but like - it’s too early to do polling on 2016.
Let’s talk about the more important 2014 midterms first, please? There are a fair number of Governor’s races this year, too.

The trouble with our democratic republic is that it is inherent upon people to form a logical and rational argument for their beliefs and a willingness to engage in peaceful, civilized discussion with others who have different beliefs and form an understanding compromise that benefits ALL of the people.
With all due respect there is a group of people in this country that can be neither rational in their argument nor respectful for others and holding our country hostage while professing to love the very laws, ideas, and culture that our Country was founded on and which they are obstructing.”
