Democrats will vote for her anyway. If she's pro-choice, that's all that matters.
WOW! If you can't stand up to a camera how can you stand up to a terrorist? Oh, never mind, the DIMS kool-aid drinkers won't care...
I understand... I understand that if you can't handle a debate you can't handle congress. Thank you for playing.
Who in the DNC-Indiana thought this lightweight would be a good candidate.
Loyal dem voters or not, stick a fork in her candidacy, it's DONE!
I almost felt sorry for her. Then I remembered she was a dem and chuckled some more.
A Democrat woman backing out of a debate because of stagefright? She'll win in a freakin' landslide.
IIRC, Souder is a conservative's conservative (one of the few 'Pubbies to oppose Bush's new drug entitlement). I don't think she stood much of a chance, anyway.
Can't wait for the first time this woman has to make a speech before the whole congress! Where's Traficant when you need him?? Beam me up!!
She'll get a huge sympathy vote and win in a landslide
This is good news as to their further demise.
Her parents (FIDEL and Maria Luisa) moved here (from Mexico?) in 40's.
From her webpage: "I lived in the East for a number of years and worked for IBM, DuPont, and CS First Boston. I also lived and worked for one year in Mexico City for CVC Telemercado Alameda. I returned to Fort Wayne and worked for Blue Cross Blue Shield and am currently working as an insurance agent. Click here for a detailed work experience resume. (pdf resume)
Oh good grief. If this woman can't stand the scrutiny in her own state, how the heck is she gonna manage her nerves when she's shown on C-SPAN (for starters)? Ye gods.
i voted for the debate, before i voted against it
Any word on how Souder responded? Was he classy and patient, or smirky?
Too bad she ran away. Sounds like she could've used some helpful tips from sKerry on how to debate. He would've told her to just stand there and say absolutely anything! The truth is optional. Promise the little people the sun, the moon, and the stars. And later, when you can't produce a d*mn thing - just say it was Bush's fault.
Honesty from a Democrat? Doubtful. Probably blew an o-ring in her Depends.
Boy, is she in the wrong career. She probably doesn't like shaking folks' hands, either.
Maria, here's a tip, If you are nervous in front of an audience, just picture yourself naked.
