What Cindy Sheehan Said

Via Buzzflash:

Supporting Hillary

"I will not make the mistake of supporting another pro-war Democrat for president again: As I won't support a pro-war Republican...."

"I thought Mrs. Clinton listened, but apparently she didn't because immediately afterwards she said the following to Sarah Ferguson of the Village Voice:

"My bottom line is that I don't want their sons to die in vain... I don't believe it's smart to set a date for withdrawal... I don't think it's the
right time to withdraw."

As those of you who know me know, I do not support Hillary for President in 2008. (I am, after all, Vicki, Who Loves Al Gore.) Hillary is far too centrist for my liberal, socialist brain, although I understand she's been an effective Senator for the State of New York. However, Cindy's 100% correct. Hillary needs to speak out against the war. Now. If she wants a hope in hell of winning the nomination. 62% of Americans now believe ~ strike that ~ know, that this war is a war based on lies from the WHIG (White House Iraq Group). This war is about OIL. Oil and Greed.

Although it's two and a half years too late, in my opinion, Democrats and other progressives need to come out in numbers to speak against this feckless war and the foolish follies of this power-drunk administration.
