Cindy Sheehan is the mother of Casey Sheehan, a U.S. soldier killed in Iraq.
She's holed up just down the road from Bush's ranch in Crawford. She's unarmed, nonviolent, and carrying little but questions. She simply agrees with the 61% of Americans who disapprove of Bush's handling of the war. All she's doing is demanding accountability from her elected president. From Bob Harris, because Sheehan's story matters.
Bush should be very afraid; when the ordinary people of this country realize that they've been betrayed in the name of protecting them, they are likely to be very unforgiving. That's a side effect of bandying about the notion of "evil" in politics.
