12. I don't know
I actually don't know much about her. I went to her website and she seems to be pro-choice which is already an improvement over the 2008 Democratic candidate. She's against "free trade" agreements like NAFTA which I'm happy about too. She's not really in line with my beliefs on health care. I want a single payer system but she wants "a voluntary, common-sense national health care plan." Obama doesn't support a single payer system either so that wouldn't make me vote against her. Her website isn't very detailed on her positions and there's more I would like to know about her.

I'm not sure about her chances of winning. If a bigger name was to enter the primary race (Andy Dillion or Glenn Anderson), her chances of even getting the Democratic nomination would be very slim. If she gets the Democratic nomination, her chances will probably depend on funding. Larkin was underfunded and unknown but was able to get 45%. If she can get her name out there a little more than Larkin did, she does have a chance but I still think it will be difficult for her to defeat McCotter.
