Maj. L. Tammy Duckworth of the Illinois National Guard, is running for Congress after losing both her legs flying a Black Hawk helicopter in Iraq. NY Times: "Ms. Duckworth, who was discharged from Walter Reed on Wednesday and from active duty the day before, decided to run for Congress, joining a growing group of a dozen Iraq veterans running next year-most, like her, as Democrats." "My role in the Army gives me the courage to make the tough decisions." "Those of us who've served on the ground have a unique perspective on the war and on what it means to serve in combat."

George: President Bush, for the last couple of weeks has been talking about his plan for victory. Do you think he's laid out a plan for victory?

Tammy: No, but I think he's got some great banners...

The NY Times has a great article posted here. The Archpundit has an interview with Tammy posted as well
