Cindy Sheehan decides to run against Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi, confirms suspicions that she’s selfish

I’m flabbergasted:

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.

from "Sheehan announces independent run against Pelosi" (the raw story)

Displacing one of the highest ranking Democrats in order to get back at the President is not a path to success, it’s a program to feed one’s own ego.  It’s like taking a sledgehammer to your Detroit-made car just so you can buy a Japanese one to really stick it to those guys in Detroit.
