Tubbs Jones is set to be a superdelegate at next week's Democratic National Convention in Denver. One of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's biggest boosters during the primaries, she threw her support to Barack Obama in June.
Note that this is the second "situation" to befall a super delegate who had publicly switched their allegiance from Clinton to Obama within a month.
She is very lucky to be alive, and apparently stabilized.
The first was the assassination of Bill Gwatney, the Democratic Party Chair for Arkansas on the 14th of this month.
