Cindy Sheehan

In an effort to regain the attention of the mainstream press that a gal by the name of Katrina took from her, Cindy Sheehan is again trying to gain the spotlight:

Anti-war groups are using a $1 million ad campaign and a demonstration they saywill attract 100,000 people to try to re-energize their movement andpressure the Bush administration to bring troops home from Iraq.

Organizers of Saturday's protest, which will take marchers past the WhiteHouse, say it will be the largest since the war began more than two years
ago.

Cindy Sheehan, the woman who drew thousands of protesters to her 26-day vigil outside President Bush's Texas ranch last month, is among those planning to participate."We want to show Congress, the president and the administration that this peace movement is thriving," said Sheehan, whose 24-year-old son, Army Spc. Casey Sheehan, was killed last year in Iraq. "We mean business and we're not going to go away until our troops come
home."

Now, I'm sympathetic to the fact that she lost a son in combat, but this has moved far beyond that.

Seems that the big-wigs in the Democratic party are ignoring her too, hoping she'll go away:

Nationally known Democratic war critics, including Howard Dean, the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, and Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton of
New York, Russell Feingold of Wisconsin and John Kerry of Massachusetts,won't attend what sponsors say will be a big anti-war rally Saturday in Washington.

The only Democratic officeholders who plan to address the rally are Reps. Cynthia McKinney of Georgia and John Conyers of Michigan.

Considering her latest swipe at Hillary Clinton, she may have buried herself as far as gaining support from the Democratic power-players. After all, they are currently focused on positioning candidates for the upcoming elections (including the '08 Presidential), and radical anti-war politics is not an issue that will sit well with voters.
