  • I am on the City Council and my husband was Mayor for two terms a few years back. We are in a small town people generally don't get too nasty during elections. We all still have to live here together. lol

  • Local level, perhaps when we retire from the military life.... National Level? Probably wouldn't make it too far~ I had too much fun in college.... If someone dug deep enough, I think there is even MTV footage of me on spring break... ;o) Of course, This was in the era long BEFORE girls gone wild, so maybe it wouldn't be so bad... ;o)

  • Nope. I see how conservative women are treated when they are running for a position.

  • No thanks. I wouldn't want all of that responsibility, always being in the public eye, having almost every move I make watched, all of the drama involved.
