Well I need to know her positions on the big issues like:
Igneous or sedimentary?
Felsic or mafic?

Or is she a wishy washy metamorphic, rhyolite lover?

She's running in my district.

I really want her to do well, but she's in third place for fundraising among the Democratic challengers.  She doesn't seem as engaged as the other candidate that I'm following closely.  Unfortunately, running for the House is a full time job and it seems like she's running as if it were a part time job.  She gets a lot of national news coverage (hot female scientist, that's great for clicks) but little local coverage.

Still, IMO the seat is VERY vulnerable.  It's just a question whether we get the incumbent Republican (Steve Knight), the establishment Democrat that moved to the district just to run (Bryan Caforio) or the more liberal Democrat (Katie Hill, my choice).  At the moment Jess Phoenix is WAY behind those three.

Remember, if we want Star Trek ideals to become real, you have to have WW3 according to canon.  It has to become worse (on course for that) before it would become better.

She's already showing the Star Trek disdain for money. Does she have enough free energy to support it?

What is this "logic" you speak of, Mr. Spock?

Well, we're less than seven years from this:

Amanda: What the hell are you talking about? I thought Faith killed a volcanologist.
Andrew: Silly, silly... Amanda. Why would Faith kill a person who studies Vulcans?
