As Cindy Sheehan prepares to challenge Speaker Nancy Pelosi for her House of Representatives seat, it becomes more clear everyday the differences between Nancy Pelosi and Cindy Sheehan. The Republican Party has done an excellent job at painting Nancy Pelosi as a crazy San Francisco liberal, but compared to Cindy Sheehan - Nancy Pelosi looks like a sweet little moderate from Nebraska.
The big question for voters in Nancy Pelosi's San Francisco district will be, do you really want a radical liberal like Cindy Sheehan representing you or is Nancy Pelosi just about right? I believe that Cindy Sheehan will destroy herself politically within the next few months and people in northern California will begin to see her as a "one trick poney" and a crazy one at that. Professional politicians like Nancy Pelosi have years of experience dealing with extremist like Cindy Sheehan and in the end Sheehan will not defeat Pelosi in Congress in 2008.
Most the latest news coming out of Iraq is positive as the U.S. troop surge seems to be working well. Even hardcore liberals are starting see that victory is possible in Iraq and if this good news continues, most mainstream democrats will drop there "get out of Iraq now" mantra and start talking about how victory in Iraq is good for America. No matter how good the news might be coming out of Iraq, extremist like Cindy Sheehan will continue to be against the war and as public opinion shifts from negative to positive on the War in Iraq, Cindy Sheehan will not be able to change her position because her entire campaign is built on hatred and most of the time optimism will win out over hatred and that is one fact Nancy Pelosi knows very well.
