  •  This is Heather's sad story. (2+ / 0-)

    She was groomed to be Domenici's replacement, but she couldn't even get out of the primary, losing to my loser, Steve Pearce. Then Tom Udall went on to defeat Pearce. Now this is her last shot, and it looks like she's going down to defeat once again. So maybe this will be the end of her since both Udall and Heinrich are young enough to stick around awhile.

    Perhaps trying to intimidate David Iglesias wasn't such a good move on her part.

      I hate to be critical of someone's looks but she is so school marm looking and acting. She has no spark. Even Susanna
      would be a better candidate even though I do not like her either. I am not fond of any Repugs. Can you tell:)

        testosterone. And not very much charm. I really don't know Heather, but Susana is from Las Cruces (where I am) so I know her well. It's late, so I'll stick with the a good thought. Twenty years ago when I first met her she was an absolutely stunning woman. She was much thinner and her hair was its natural dark brown color. And her husband Chuck was much thinner as well, and absolutely adorable. His smile would light up a room. That was before they turned Repuke.

          I read her account of why they turned Repug but I still cannot grasp it. How could you go so far? Do you think there are other motives? I read once where it was speculated she had been bought?

          •  She said during the Repuke convention that (0+ / 0-)

            some people convinced her that she already thought like a Repuke. That's bs. She was an attorney in the DA's office. The DA fired her. She sued the county and won $121,000. She then changed parties and ran against the DA and won. She's an extremely ambitious woman. She runs an excellent campaign and gets a large number of crossover votes. She's also a very vindictive person so you don't want to get on her wrong side. She used her position as DA to bring false charges against her enemies because she could. For several years nobody wanted to run against her because they were afraid of the possible blowback. Her husband was a Magistrate judge for awhile. During that time he gave her office access to files she shouldn't have had. He resigned, but the reason I stated wasn't known by the general public. I only know because I have a friend who is an attorney. As far as her being bought, all you need to know is that her largest contributor (just under 1/2 million dollars) when she ran for governor was Robert Perry, a Texan best known for his contributions to the Swiftboat ads. So, she can be bought, but it has nothing to do with her switching parties.

          I never see a Wilson ad, except right after a series of Rove ads.  Wilson is repugnant!

          Dick Cheney said, "Pi$$ on 'em!" And, Ronald Reagan replied, "That's a Great Idea. Let's Call it 'Trickle Down Economics!"
