Ask Roll Call: Twitter Q&A Transcript (Stu Rothenberg)

Roll Call is continuing Twitter Q-and-A sessions and the latest edition was with Stu Rothenberg, a Roll Call columnist who is best known as the editor of the Rothenberg Political Report.

His latest column questions the wisdom of buzz suggesting Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D-Ariz.), who is recovering from a gunshot wound, could mount a Senate bid.

Stu is a Twitter newbie but has already mastered the craft, and he got a record number of questions Thursday.

Since it was on Twitter, of course, his answers were kept to under 140 characters. A transcript follows.
