    Does Wendy Davis have a chance to win Texas?

    When she was 21 years old, Wendy Davis married a lawyer who was 13 years older than her, and he paid for her undergrad and her law school at Harvard. Immediately after he had written the last check, she divorced him.

    What do we call a woman who is with a guy for money, but when the money dries up, she's done with him?

    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? 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.

    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.

    Do you think, given the character concerns this woman has, that she will win in the state of Texas?

    Who knows if Texans are able to recognize that if she were a man, none of this would be an issue. At the moment, I don't give Texans that much credit, as they have proven too many times to be a regressive society.

    One of her daughters is from her teenaged marriage; the second daughter is by hubs #2, Jeff Davis.

    I'm sure if there were a man who married a woman so that she would pay his way through college and then left her afterward, who abandoned his kids, that people would question the character of that man and rightfully so.

    Right because leaving a cancerous wife in her hospital bed to marry a rich, blond, young hottie really harmed McCain. Pleeeeeaaaase.... Granted not in TX but evenso.... You really are just so obtuse about your own party.

    I like how the poll and the title ask two different things. She has a chance because she's not running as a third party candidate (Yes, I know, Gary Johnson blah blah blah). However, I don't think she'll win.

    Re: Does Wendy Davis have a chance to win Texas?

    Several things:

    Who the hell is this Wendy Davis person?
    Why is she running for office in Texas?
    How are any of the things mentioned in the OP even remotely unusual or unacceptable, especially since we're talking about a political office?
    Education.

    I think you're confusing John McCain with Newt Gingrich.

    I'm sorry you are right, McCain's wife was in a severe car accident and became disabled. Same end result though, abandoning a woman because she wasn't perfectly pretty anymore.

    A twice divorced pro-choice Texas legislator who's husband was named Jefferson Davis is running for Governor? Heh.
