Here is something interesting:
Cindy Sheehan, the peace activist who set up camp near President Bush’s Texas ranch last summer, said Saturday she is considering running against Sen. Dianne Feinstein to protest what she called the California lawmaker’s support for the war in Iraq.
“She voted for the war. She continues to vote for the funding. She won’t call for an immediate withdrawal of the troops,” Sheehan told The Associated Press in an interview while attending the World Social Forum in Venezuela along with thousands of other anti-war and anti-globalization activists.
I’d be very interested to see how Cindy Sheehan would do in a Democratic primary in California. I’d also be interested to see how quickly the blogosphere could fill her coffers. I’d advise her against doing it. It is not easy to put together a senate campaign, and it is a little late to get started. But, who knows? And Cindy has a point.
“If I decided to run, I would have no illusions of winning, but it would bring attention to all the peace candidates in the country,” she said.
We need candidates to rattle the cages of the Dems that are soft on Bush. Nothing rattles a cage like a primary challenge.
