    Default Sheehan announces independent run against Pelosi

    Former anti-war leader Cindy Sheehan announced on Thursday that in 2008 she will run as an independent candidate against Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). "I dedicate my candidacy to the people of Iraq and Afghanistan," Sheehan said, weeping.

    Sheehan later appeared on CNN to explain that she was running because "they're not making the administration change course in Iraq. They give him more money ... to wage the war. They're not holding him accountable."

    "What's your real goal here?" CNN asked Sheehan, pointing out that, even if elected, she would take office just a few days before the end of Bush's term.

    "I'm hoping that this will spur the Democrats to action," Sheehan replied. "I'm hoping that other people around the country will hold the other enablers of the Bush regime accountable. ... We have to get back to honoring our Constitution and honoring our men and women who fight these wars for the corporate elite."

    CNN then asked Sheehan about her statement in May that she was leaving the anti-war movement. She responded that she had always planned to return in some capacity, but "the thing that brought me back into this faster than I wanted to was when George Bush commutted Scooter Libby's sentence, which I think is treason, and the Democrats didn't do anything about it."

    "I'm not coming back as the face of the anti-war movement any more," Sheehan concluded. "I'm coming back in another direction."

    This is the THIRD time she's announced that she's running for Congress.

    Maybe she's compensating for Fred Thompson's unannounced candidacy.
