Who's in charge of the opposition

posted by Rob at 4:27 PM

As the Iraq War continues, anti-Bush forces finally have a leader.

John Kerry? No.

Hillary Clinton? No.

Howard Dean? No.

John Edwards? No.

Matter of fact, this person isn't a professional Democrat. Two weeks ago no one heard of her. Today, she's all over the news and giving high-profile speeches.

So I guess for Demcrats, the presidential nomination process is over. It's Sheehan/Hackett in 2008!!

UPDATE: Best of the Web today touches on the issue of Sheehan. We argee with the last line (emphasis mine):

The journalists will soon move on, and her political allies may do so as well. For them she is a mere instrument. The White House press corps will discard her as soon as they return to Washington where there's real news going on. Serious opponents of the war in Iraq will cast her aside if her foul statements make her an embarrassment. When that happens, we can only hope that someone still cares about Cindy Sheehan - not as a story or a symbol, but as a human being.
