1. I always liked her!

Mostly b/c her name. And because she was sassy!

2. Don't get your hopes up.

Sure, they elected another entertainer in Fred Thompson but lately TN has embraced the batshit crazy repubs wholeheartedly.

5. Empty Nest vs. Empty Head for TN Senate

That's what the headline ought to read.

6. I loved her when she voiced Alice on "The Critic"

Had no idea that was her until I just looked at IMDB. Cool!

9. she's an American citizen. that makes her qualified to run.

 

Personally, I am sick of businessmen, lawyers, and millionaires being our only representatives in Congress.

Always thought she was cool - She faces tough odds, but this could be a fun run in any case.

14. A fiery progressive filled with one-liners - she's like the anti-Harold Ford

I think she'd be a hell of a candidate.
