    Sheehan to Feinstein: Filibuster Alito, Or I'll Run Against You
    (CNSNews.com) - Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan has threatened to run for Sen. Dianne Feinstein's (D-Calif.) seat unless Feinstein filibusters Supreme Court nominee Samuel Alito.

    Sheehan, who was in Caracas, Venezuela Friday attending the World Social Forum, heard that several Democrats planned to filibuster Alito but that Feinstein, who is up for re-election in November, announced that she will vote against Alito but would not filibuster the nomination.

    "I'm appalled that Diane Feinstein wouldn't recognize how dangerous Alito's nomination is to upholding the values of our constitution and restricting the usurpation of presidential powers, for which I've already paid the ultimate price," Sheehan said in a statement.

    Sheehan became a national figure representing the anti-war movement after her son Casey was killed in Iraq and she stood vigil outside President Bush's Crawford, Texas ranch last summer demanding to speak face-to-face with Bush about her son's death.

    Sheehan claimed Alito has "an extensive paper trail documenting the right-wing political agenda that he has actively advanced, not only as a high-ranking official in the Reagan Administration, but also as a judge."

    She accused Alito of trying to restrict Congress' power and supporting "efforts to curtail privacy rights, including not only privacy from government surveillance and arbitrary arrest, but also other constitutional rights based on privacy, such as reproductive liberty for women."

    Sheehan is scheduled to return from Venezuela on Monday and will travel to the nation's capital to take part in an alternative State of the Union address:clap1: http://www.cnsnews.com/news/viewstory.asp?Page=\Politics% 5Carchive\200601\POL20060127d.html :

    If Sheehan wasn't so far off her rocker, she'd remember that it wasn't CONGRESS that implemented abortion-on-demand. Restricting the power elected representatives would only HELP that cause.

    Don't you love it when they turn on their own? It makes me think of that phrase:

    "I don't care who wins, as long as it's a fight to the death." :laugh:

    Hmmm....

    I guess I'll have to threaten to move to California and run for that seat if Sheehan runs.

    Bet she's scared now!

    Hey if they were battling it out between each other I might be able to get elected. Imagine a Carpet-Bagging Libertarian Senator of California....

    It just struck me how the phrase "turning on each other" has such a different meaning from "turning each other on". Isn't that weird? :dunno:
