    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 Sheehan.

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 last year.
