I can also understand the urge to "have it both ways." However, you can't be intellectually honest with yourself, or your own heart and support the Democratic Party. It is simply too incongruous. The only way to show that you are for peace and against racism, tyranny, and the destruction of the environment, is to not bend to, or bend over for, the War Party
I am an admirer of Cindy Sheehan, and I wish she had offered up some solutions of her own to the many and varied problems that continue to plague our nation. She didn't. Instead, she only says that we should not support the "war party" after offering a rather whining criticism of having been abandoned after Obama was elected. I wonder if Cindy thinks that a McCain-Palin administration would be doing a better job of governing our country. I'm sorry that her cause lost steam after the election. Too bad Cindy hasn't marketed herself like the half-term governor of Alaska Sarah Palin has...perhaps Cindy would still have tons of followers and I'm sure a much more sensible message.
