    Shelley has problems with the far right:  since being elected, she has often been allowed the last vote...voted with R leadership if the vote was necessary, voted against if measure would pass without her vote.  She did vote with the Ryan budget to voucherize Medicare, and always voted for the Bush tax cuts, but is a somewhat pro-choice Republican.  She also has ethical problems, as her broker husband made big money on Wall Street from her inside information.  There was also being on the page supervisory committee during the Mark Foley episode.

    Jay probably won't run again, mainly because of health reasons.
