    An ardent Hillary Clinton supporter, many non-Ohioans might remember her from the primaries, in the embarassing exchange with Senator Kirk Watson (an Obama supporter), who could not name Senator Obama's legislative accomplishments. She also made the news when she commented that Obama shouldn't be ashamed of wearing the clothing of "his country", in commenting on the circulating of the photo of Obama in muslim dress (note: Obama is American).
    Condolences to her family and to the people of the 11th district.

    I grew up in the NE Ohio area, so I've been hearing about her all my life. Though I didn't agree with her on everything (like supporting Hillary), she was a hell of a fighter, always sticking up for the little guy. It's a bad, bad loss, and I hope that Gov. Strickland can find someone with the same qualities to fill her seat.

    This is sad. She was only 58, much too young to die. My prayers are with her family tonight.
