Ok, so I shouldn't since she's going to the Olympics. However, it must be hard being Ashley knowing that she peaked a year or two before the Olympics and is now squarely NOT the best American ladies skater. Let's face it, Gracie is more attractive and more inherently talented than Ashley. Ashley has traditionally done a better job of selling her programs with sex appeal and some flair, but it looks like these attributes aren't enough anymore for golden skates when your technique and skating skills are clearly a bit inferior to your closest competitors. I wouldn't count Ashley out, but she has to know most people don't really have faith in her medaling and don't believe she is the future of American skating. Her glory days have likely passed.
