If Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) refuses to bring articles of impeachment against President Bush to the floor of the House, anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan said Monday, Sheehan not only will challenge the Speaker in the next election but also will defeat her.
Discussing President Bush and Vice President Cheney, Sheehan said, We put them there. We can fire them. If Nancy Pelosi doesn't do her constitutionally mandated job by midnight tonight, tomorrow I will announce that I'm going to run against her.
And not only am I going to run against her, but I will beat her, Sheehan added.
A spokesman for Pelosi, Nadeam Elshami, said the Speaker and House Democrats are working toward their goals this Congress and would not address Sheehans proclamation.
The Speaker and House Democrats are focused on ending the war in Iraq, holding the Bush administration accountable and delivering a new direction for the American people, Elshami said. Those are the priorities of the Speaker and the Democrats.
Sheehan seized the anti-war spotlight during her extended protest outside the presidents ranch in Crawford, Texas in 2005, after her 24-year-old son, Casey, was killed in Iraq. Speaking at a demonstration at Arlington National Cemetery, Sheehan argued that it is Pelosis constitutional obligation to impeach the president.
The administration has abused our soldiers. They've abused our freedoms, Sheehan said. They have killed my son and countless others. And they must be held accountable.
Impeachment is not a fringe movement. It is mandated in our Constitution. Nancy Pelosi had no authority to take it off the table, Sheehan said.

What a leader!
Well then, by all means, if Cindy is going to hold an administraion accountable and give us a new direction, let's vote for her! Because, in all my years, this is the first time I've ever heard anything so profound from a stinkin' politician.
But, can she be classified a candidate for the Senate, before she can be classified a padded cell candidate? Aren't there rules about this?
This’ll be the country’s first large-scale hippy-dippy, openly ant-American campaign. I can’t wait!
She’s running against the Speaker of the House, not the Senate, but otherwise you’re on the mark!
Ehem, ehem....I knew that.
With a nail studded ballbat?
Cindy is no genius and it doesn’t even appear she is smart enough to know when her “15 minutes of fame” is up. I can’t imagine what she is thinking but it will be amusing to watch her act on it.
I propose that Cindy Sheehan be re-named ‘ Screach ‘
because that’s what her voice always sounds like....
This will be a big circus. The loyal Dems and those that have dumped Sheehan will tow Pelosi on the party line. Then will have the so called progressives, fringe leftists, and code stinkos supporting Sheehan. It should be interesting.
A fight to the finish in the duel of the broom mistresses.
I hope she follows through with this.
Donate to her campaign, it would be a higher impact donation than directly to the GOP.
in all honesty, the only difference between cindy and nancy is their bank accounts. they’re both kooks.
