LOS ANGELES US lawmaker Gabrielle Giffords, who was almost killed in a horrific shooting in January, will eventually return to Congress, a senior Democrat who saw her last week said Thursday.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the newly-elected chair of the Democratic National Committee, said Giffords -- shot in the head at point blank range -- had made "tremendous progress" in the fourth months since the Arizona attack.

"I do think she's gonna come back to Congress," she told Good Morning America on ABC television. "I mean the progress that she's making, I think that from what I understand, she's on track for that to happen," she added.

1. I understand she may also be...
the unofficial frontrunner to replace Jon Kyle.

Way cool, if true.

2. Anyone who kicks that fucking idiot out of office
deserves the gratitude of the whole country.

5. I hope she decides whether to run for that spot very soon.
The Republicans already have their candidate picked and he is campaigning throughout the state. So far Democrats have been silent. A candidate needs to be picked ASAP. She will not win a Senate seat in Arizona based on a sympathy vote. She will have to campaign for it.

3. A lot is riding
on the first interview she gives. A lot of public perception will be garnered from that.
