    Ben, you are being disingenuous -- Coulter's real question, which didn't apply to her own situation, was "is Harvard law '1500 miles and two (or three, either way) years away from time managing raising one's own kids' better than Texas?"

    Your mileage may vary, but since Davis' choice was to not come down on her choice of school ambition in trade for having a more constant role with her own kids, Coulter is probably right that Davis is not the paragon of the juggling and compromises of single parenting that she has been willing to have people believe.

    If you have 2 kids then that changes things. Father or mother. I'd never leave my kids 2500 miles behind- especially if I had a decent option close by. That's the point Coulter is trying to make.

    I don't care about the divorce boilerplate language and I don't care if her divorce came through at 21 instead of 19. But this bio points to a narcissist of the highest order.

    I love it when the Foxbots think something will sink a Dems' career.

    The only people watching would never vote for her anyway.

    maybe it will and maybe it won't

    gotta believe it will not help her-but there is a certain % of idiots out there who will vote for her because of all this and how unfair it is to attack a single Mother

    And I love it when the lemmings continue to bail water even after the ship has sunk...

    Her career was sunk long before this video emerged.

    I'm not sure if how you characterized Davis accurately here but it does appear as though she sanitized her personal background for political purposes. It's disappointing but not unusual. Most politicians on both sides do this on a regular basis. Conservatives that attack her for this knowingly vote for male conservative candidates that sanitize their personal histories. If Davis were a Pub, conservatives would be jumping through hoops to justify Davis.

    She'd be a much more appealing candidate if she'd be honest about her background.....it would stop the chatter and the public would have an understanding as to why she made the choices she did. Unfortunately, we are in a time where politicians have to cover for or sanitize their backgrounds in order to run or hold office.

    The lying about her background is minuscule, and is really not at issue. What is at issue is her behavior regarding her children and her sugar daddy.

    I have no issues with respect to how she portrayed her background, and what really happened.

    Do you question male conservative politicians on their behavior as fathers and whether they married a wealthy woman?

    Politics as usual. Which is why it's silly to ever join one of these teams. They should never have the benefit of knowing they have your vote. It should always be up for grabs, no matter party affiliation, gender, race, sexual orientation, etc.

    I doubt she would be more appealing if she was honest. There's a reason she hid this stuff given the poll addiction of today's politicians. What she did was quite disgusting. People bring up Newt but he did resign over his past and is ancient history.
