The signals are strong. One year after being shot in the head, Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is on a mission to return to the job she so clearly loved.
Her husband and people near the three-term congresswoman say she is highly motivated to recover from her injuries and get back to work in Washington, potentially using her inspirational story as a way to mend political differences in the nation's capital.

Her future will depend on a recovery that has progressed in remarkable fashion over the past year as she is now able to walk and talk. Potential Republican challengers are awaiting her decision before committing to the race.
