    Do I think she started out as an opportunist? No.

    Do I think that she tried to broker that momentum into something else later on (ie. Chavez and the like)? I'm not sure...and that makes me cynical.

    That line I quoted above tells me that she was feeling "limited" and wanted to follow different tangents with regards to her protesting. And it suggests that she is now willing to use her credibility (as Casey's Mom and POTUS challenger???) for other things.

    Does this make her an opportunist? Or does it make her human, as the starkness of the grief fades to a constant numbness, to want to move forward with her life?
