    Sounds like college was the price of the poontang. Maybe it was worth it.

    Oh no.... maybe you're right.

    What do we call a woman who is with a guy for money, but when the money dries up, she's done with him?
    What does the 13 year age difference have to do with anything?

    How do you know she married him simply to get the money for law school?

    How soon exactly was "immediately" after writing his last check?

    She has two children, full custody of her two children were given to her ex-husband even though he is not the biological father. Isn't it uncommon for the courts to award full custody to the father?
    Unless they mutually agreed, and for reasons I damn sure don't know. Do you?

    What did she do that she was not awarded custody of her own kids? The divorce records are sealed. Hmmm. As a Texan, I'm concerned about this.
    You might try looking for her unsealed court records next to George W's military records and court records. As a Texan I have no doubt you're still trying to find those records as well.

    Also, did she even want her kids? There's no record that she even fought for them.

    Did she want her kids? We know she's an advocate for partial birth abortion.
    And what?

    Do you think, given the character concerns this woman has, that she will win in the state of Texas?
    She won't get the vote of people who have already made up their minds and are looking for reasons to justify their preconceived opinions.

    How are any of the things mentioned in the OP even remotely unusual or unacceptable, especially since we're talking about a political office?

    Running for governor of the most important state in the union.

    Yeah, I goofed. Oops.

    Can you prove that she did either one?

    My ex-wife and I divorced right after I finished grad school. You tell me why. Based on your assumptions it was because I got what I wanted and no longer needed to be married.

    By the way you know that Texas has had female governors in the past, right?

Did they adopt the children, or were they hers from before the marriage? If they were adopted she had no more obligation to retain custody than her husband did. The fact that she supports legal abortion says nothing about her parenting abilities.
    She didn't adopt, they're her kids.

    I may do that, but I doubt I'll vote for her.
