Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, Arizona Democrat, was politically vulnerable in the 2010 elections because of her support for Obamacare, but one can misread a political candidate by focusing on only one issue.

Overall, Mrs. Giffords is hard to label using the usual political definitions. She supports some liberal legislation like health care reform, the energy reform bill, abortion, stem-cell research and the Dream Act. In contrast, she also strongly supports conservative legislation like gun rights, tough enforcement at the Mexican border and anti-illegal immigration laws.
