It’s official – she’s in it to win it! I met Peace Mom Cindy Sheehan along with about 300 or so of her supporters at Arlington National Cemetery this morning where she had a small press conference. From there, we walked all the way over Memorial Bridge, up Independence Ave to the Rayburn House Office Building. Cindy, along with Reverend Yearwood and Ray McGovern met with House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers about the likelihood of Impeachment for President Bush and Vice President Cheney.
Cindy came out into a crowed hallway and said:
“The Democrats will not hold this administration accountable, so we have to hold the Democrats accountable… and I, for one, am going to step up to the plate and run against Nancy Pelosi.”
Afterwards, Sheehan staged a sit-in right there in Conyers’ office for which she and about 45 other people were arrested. Cindy told me it was her 8th arrest for protesting – but her first since coming out of her short-lived retirement.
