I don't think going to Venezuela is going to help her credibility.|
Cindy Sheehan, the peace activist who just announced that she is weighing a run for Senate, plans to protest again outside President Bush's Texas ranch, Venezuela's president said Sunday with Sheehan by his side.I supported the idea of Cindy Sheehan-a mom who lost her son to what seemingly is a bunch of lies-but she doesn't need to coddle leaders who openly scorn the U.S. Now, calling her "far left" sounds about right. I can understand why elected officials didn't join her protest in Crawford.
Hugo Chavez, his arm around Sheehan's shoulders, told a group of activists that Sheehan had told him that during Holy Week, in April, "she is going to put up her tent again in front of Mr. Danger's ranch."
"She invited me to put up a tent. Maybe I'll put up my tent also," Chavez said, to applause from activists invited to his weekly broadcast on the final day of the leftist World Social Forum.
Sheehan, whose 24-year-old soldier son, Casey, was killed in Iraq in 2004, thanked Chavez for "supporting life and peace" and she was impressed by his sincerity.
