Sheehan thrashing 'war hawk' Hillary: Cindy tears into Clinton for Iraq support, compares her to radio's Rush Limbaugh (Joe Kovacs, October 19, 2005, WorldNetDaily.com)

Cindy Sheehan, the so-called "peace mom" on a crusade to end U.S. involvement in the Iraq war, is publicly blasting Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., for her continued support of the ongoing conflict.

"I think she is a political animal who believes she has to be a war hawk to keep up with the big boys," Sheehan writes in an open letter. "I would love to support Hillary for president if she would come out against the travesty in Iraq. But I don't think she can speak out against the occupation, because she supports it. I will not make the mistake of supporting another pro-war Democrat for president again: As I won't support a pro-war Republican."

If Ms Sheehan didn't exist Dick Morris would have had to invent her.

Gift? I wouldn't be shocked if Hillary gets effectively drummed out of the party by the Soros/moonbat Left. Can't win the general election if you can't get the nomination, y'know.

One wonders if Hillary will wind up like Hubert Humphrey, except that she won't be able to break with her 'yes' vote.

Her best hope is that by the middle of next year, Iraq is no longer on the front page. The hard left won't ever let go, but that won't matter.

How does this not work to her advantage? It almost makes it impossible to treat her as anything other than a centrist.

Pepys: What is the centrist position on the war?

At last somebody else gets it. Wanna bet that Cindy's letter wasn't actually written by Hillary's campaign staff?

Bluto has Sheehan's number. I wish she'd stop getting ink. She's the epitomi of the worst of the 60/70s. She's a vulgarism; fecal matter on a mens room stall wall.
