Thank you. Yes, Mamas Jane and Kate are doing fine, still doctoring and hammering away at the SisterCrone Retirement Village, so you know I’m not about to let anything happen to Social Security anytime soon. I can count a lot higher than two now — heck, Troy and I have FOUR kids — and I know that American families of every size and stripe need good programs — from Head Start to strong schools to vital public universities — to help them succeed in our difficult financial times. And this can be done with fiscal responsibility: my economics degree and subsequent successful career as CEO and chief number-cruncher at Black & Decker and Garnier Nutrisse make me the right woman for the job.
