    I feel bad for her, but this is for the best. Her constituents deserve active representation.

    Her constituents deserve actual active representation. So yes its a good move for her to resign.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Watch her announce her resignation, and you'll have your answer. She's such a brave lady...and she's making the right decision.

    I think it's sad, she showed such courage.

    And I applaud her for realizing her limitations and stepping aside for her constituency to get the representation that it requires.

    An example to us all.

    As everyone else has already said, she is making the right decision. She needs to focus on her health and her recovery, and the people of Arizona need to have active representation in congress.

    I was hoping for a fairy tale ending. Perhaps in a few years, she'll run again.

    If she allows this to make her quit... then the terrorists win!!!!!!

    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Very sad to see her resign, but in her situation it definitely a necessary move. She can return to public office when she regains her health, but she cannot recover from the injuries she sustained without taking a substantial leave of absence to do it.

    She has served her country honorably. The choice is nobody but her own to make.
