    Eddie is an old friend - I've known him since he was a legislative staffer. He is smart, hardworking, and knows how to discuss things with people who disagree (sadly, the Texas lege does not allow for reasonable disagreement). I've also known Mark Strama for a long time -- the fact that he won that district consistently shows that he can appeal to Republicans.

    I don't know Wendy Davis, but she is incredibly brave & strong. She first came to my attention last session (or session before last) speaking so passionately about a hate crime law. And she continues to be willing to speak up -- and do so really well. Jessica Farrar & Trey Martinez Fisher are also people I've heard good things about, but don't know much about.

    What it comes down to is can we get a nominee who we can work passionately for (who we can like enough to give up all those hours of our lives for), who can also not get destroyed in the general election.
