While Rep. Gabrielle Giffords has been focused on her recovery, many have been inappropriately concerned with whether or not she'll be well enough to run in 2012. Now the speculation has shifted to her husband Mark Kelly, which still premature, but somewhat less gauche.
Earlier this week, Giffords and Kelly announced they'll be writing a memoir following the news that she's been released from the hospital and he's retiring. Writing a book is often one of the first signs that someone's planning to run for office (see: Michele Bachmann). However, just about everyone's releasing memoirs these days, and Giffords and Kelly certainly have more worthwhile insights to share than two Alaskan teens who made a baby and took their teenage bickering to the national stage.
