Cindy Sheehan considering running against Nancy Pelosi

From the Post.

Cindy Sheehan, the soldier’s mother who galvanized the anti-war movement, said Sunday that she plans to run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi unless she introduces articles of impeachment against President Bush in the next two weeks.

Sheehan said she will run against the San Francisco Democrat in 2008 as an independent if Pelosi does not seek by July 23 to impeach Bush. That’s when Sheehan and her supporters are to arrive in Washington, D.C., after a 13-day caravan and walking tour starting next week from the group’s war protest site near Bush’s Crawford ranch.

Sheehan has been through more than any mother should have to endure – the death of her son at the hands of a president who doesn’t care. Unfortunately, the ordeal has taken its toll, making her less and less effective with each passing day.
