Peace activist and mother of a fallen soldier in Iraq, Cindy Sheehan has filed papers to run against House Speaker Nancy Pelosi this November.
Angered by the fact that Pelosi has not commenced impeachment proceedings, nor moved to swiftly bring home the troops or support a single payer health care system, Sheehan says that Pelosi has ignored the will of her progressive constituency, San Francisco.
Speaker Pelosi’s spokesman countered that Pelosi is working for things that are possible. An impeachment trial, he said, would be “divisive” and prevent Congress from solving other challenges.
But, considering impeachment isn’t Sheehan’s only concern, do you think she is right when saying Pelosi, who has been elected to 10 terms, should be more in touch with her constituency? Do you think Cindy Sheehan has a chance of winning? Should she? Do you consider Sheehan's mission of the last couple of years, a positive one? Do you agree with her?
