THETA, TN – One person is a United States Senator, formerly Attorney General of a State, a rising star, and headed up with an unlimited future.
The other person is United States Representative, a hide bound ideologue – the ends justifies the means kind of individual. Veteran observers say she has risen way above her “Peter Principle” level.
Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) is 46 years old, and the youngest of 20 women serving in the United States Senate. She is the only Republican in her State’s Congressional delegation. Attending Pennsylvania State University, she graduated with a degree in Political Science, and attended Law School at Villanova University.
Kelly Ayotte is the real deal.
She appears to be Cabinet level or U. S. Supreme Court material, or could serve in the Executive Branch of government, maybe as Vice President or President one day.
Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) is 62 years old, super ambitious, blatantly manipulative, and often given to petty and shrill expressions of displeasure when things do not go her way. She is gratingly ideological in her outlook and actions.
The voters of Tennessee have the opportunity to bring Marsha Blackburn home when she stands for re-election in November 2014. Her opponent Dan Cramer has labeled Blackburn as the “Tennessee Face Of Animal Abuse”, and the term is sticking.
Senator Kelly Ayotte has sponsored a Bill to end cruel treatment of Horses.
Representative Marsha Blackburn has sponsored a Bill to enable the continuation of the institutionalized cruel soring of Horses.
It seems that the only two things that these protagonists have in common are their gender and party affiliation.
With the help of a lot of people, Senator Ayotte successfully garnered Senate Commerce Committee approval today of a major piece of legislation.
Not too bad when you realize she did not become a U. S. Senator until January 2011.
The ultimate outcome of this important issue, as well as the career paths of these two women, will be interesting to watch in the days, weeks, months and years ahead.
