19. I met Tammy Duckworth in DC six years ago.

She was uncomplicated, straightforward, smart, didn't make a big deal of her injuries, but didn't hide them either.
Her mom is Thai, which accounts for her Asian features. I asked. She didn't appear to be a firebrand activist,
but was, for obvious reasons, concerned with the Bush administration (this was 2006, remember) not giving
a crap about vets who needed help when they came back from the Middle East. She walks with some difficulty,
but thinks with none. She was a newbie in her 2006 race against a Republican scumbag who accused Tammy,
of all people, of being a "cut and run" Democrat where the guy had never served himself. The climate has
changed, needless to say. I think she gets in this time.
