    what makes this lady think she would win. For starters, she quit her stance. If she wants to do any goood, she should go back to war protest, not e;lected offices. I would'nt vote her dog catcher. Nancy Pelosi has nothing to worry about, if this is her competition.

    I'm certain that Sister Nancy is shaking, quakeing, and exuding massive amounts of dewey droplets from her brow..

    Who cares?

    She has no chance and just wants to get back in the spot light demanding even more nonsense

    As a conservative I APPLAUD Cindy Sheehan and encourage her to continue!

    Californians do prefer a bit of nuttiness in their elected representatives (Pelosi, Boxer, Jerry "Moon-beam" Brown, Gavin "State Laws be damned – gay marriage ok in San Fran" Newsome, etc).

    Cindy ... as far as I can tell you're just as qualified as the rest of the bunch!

    Didn't Cindy Sheehan leave the antiwar movement because it was too hard on her family (not a bad reason, to be frank)? How is running a Congressional campaign and then serving in Congress on the opposite coast from California give her more time with her family?

    If impeachment movement successful against Bush AND Cheney, this lady could be running against a sitting President.

    I dont believe they can impeach both the president and vice president at the same time which means they really need to do kucinich's bill first (impeach cheney, because god forbid the words "president cheney" is ever mentioned... even for an hour)

    You really don't think if sheehan ran in pelosis district she wouldn't have a chance? I'm not from californian, but pelosi has rolled over. She promised so many things, and like so many others, once she sits in the 'big boys chair' her perspective changes. If sheehan ran, pelosi would and should be very very nervous.
