Cindy says she won’t run for a seat in the US Senate.
Cindy Sheehan, the anti-Iraq war activist whose son was killed in the conflict there, put an end to speculation on Thursday that she would launch a long-shot bid to become a U.S. senator from California.
Sheehan, speaking in front of San Francisco City Hall, said she would not run for the office.
“If I thought that running for Senate would bring our young people home more quickly I would do it in a minute, but I am not convinced that that would do so,” Sheehan said.
A campaign would have pitted her against California’s senior senator, Dianne Feinstein, a Democrat who is one of the state’s most popular politicians.
Although experts and polls suggest Feinstein, in office since 1992, will win reelection easily, a campaign by Sheehan would have provided her with a platform for her anti-war message.
Darn it all! I was really looking forward to Mother Sheehan on the stump against DiFi. All that potential entertainment, shot down in flames. In the least it would have made a great reality TV show.
In all likelihood, the higher ups in the DNC got word to Cindy that she really shouldn’t attempt a run in politics. Now, I’m not suggesting that they came to their senses about Sheehan and finally recognized that she’s a complete loon. I’m guessing DiFi and her “people” got to Sheehan and fired a warning shot in her general direction. Something like, “if you even think about entering this race and making it difficult for Diane, the Democratic National Committee will shun you faster than you can say Hugo Chavez. Oh yeah, and your friends at Moveon.org? They’ll kick you to the curb too.” And if that happened, Cindy would be one lonely moonbat. So, PRESTO! No Senate run for Cindy.
The question now is, what does she get in return?
