  •  I like how she's putting education first (10+ / 0-)

    As a teacher in the state of Texas, who has had to deal with the shortfall in education spending over the past few years, I can't tell you how satisfying it is for me to have such a great choice for Governor in November.

      Color me a little skeptical when she says she's going to increase teacher pay but without raising taxes...

      •  Considering (6+ / 0-)

        that Rick Perry's plan for education was to cut as much money as possible from it, any plan Wendy Davis has for education is 10 billion times better.

      •  I love her support for public education (0+ / 0-)

        but hope that all of her statements are well-researched with documentation ready at hand.  She will be challenged at every turn and there is nothing better than immediate response with referenced facts.

        The truth always matters.

        •  Did you see any of her 11-hour filibuster? (1+ / 0-)

          If you did, then you know that not only can she think on her feet, with accurate facts and information readily at hand, or rather in her "pretty little head," but Wendy Davis can stand and deliver for longer than pretty much anyone else in Texas can just sit and listen to her, and she makes Ted Cruz look like a wussy moron with his panty-waisted, nonsensical, fictitous fullobluster.  

          Perhaps if I hadn't seen just how masterfully and for 11 hours straight, she ruled that huge, imposing room full of right wing redneck extremists who could have ended her time on the floor with the first error she made, I might share your concern.  

          But I did see her and I am totally in awe of this woman and her ability to deliver accurate facts for a whole lot longer than most anyone else can manage to sit and listen.  

          I'd love to know how many bathroom breaks were taken and how much water was drunk by those right wingers who were in that room like circling vultures, while Wendy had neither for the entire 11 hours that she so masterfully held the floor.  

          No worries, I believe, no worries at all.
