USS Gabrielle Giffords

The Navy announced today that its new Littoral Combat Ship will be named the USS Gabrielle Giffords in honor of former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords. Wow. That's an honor indeed. It's rather amazing how Giffords, 41, has become such a beloved American icon. Then again, why not? We need all the inspiration we can get these days. Next stop, Mount Rushmore? In fact, if God is merciful and she fully recovers, I say forget about returning to Congress (as she pledged to do). The way is clear for her to make a White House run one day. And I daresay she would be unbeatable.
