Hillary, McCain to Meet with Cindy Sheehan
2008 presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and
John McCain have agreed to meet with anti-American war protester Cindy Sheehan when Sheehan travels to Washington, D.C. this weekend to cap
her national tour.
Sheehan has meetings scheduled with an array of left-wing Democratic officeholders, including Ted Kennedy, Nancy Pelosi and Henry Waxman - as well
as Clinton and McCain, the Village Voice reported Thursday.
Sen. Clinton's decision to meet with Sheehan flies
in the face of her attempts to reposition herself as a pro-defense
Democrat - although lately she's been scrambling to appeal to her party's left-wing base.
The McCain meeting, however,
is completely inexplicable.
On August 24, the Tucson Citizen asked McCain if President Bush was right not to meet with
His response? "If I was president of the United States, I probably wouldn't."
The same day, McCain told the
Arizona Star that Sheehan "is probably being used" by anti-war groups”.
More troubling still: both
Clinton and McCain's office's are no doubt aware of the long list of anti-American statements
uttered by Sheehan since she lost her son in Iraq
Now I hear Sheehan has written a book! The fool!)
