Sheehan Book Signing Draws More Cameras Than Fans

"I never set out to become the 'Rosa Parks of the peace movement.' I ventured out on August 6, 2005, to hold George Bush accountable and to raise awareness about his lies and misuse and abuse of power. I didn't set out to become anyone's hero. I am a regular mom who just wants peace and no one else to be murdered for the deceptions of our government."
(Cindy Sheehan from “Not One More Mother’s Child”)

(AP) Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan waits to sign her next book near President Bush's ranch on Saturday, Nov. 26, 2005 in Crawford, Texas.

(World Net Daily) While book-signings for political figures like Bill and Hillary Clinton, Ann Coulter or Sean Hannity often feature long lines and people waiting for hours, the scene at Cindy Sheehan's book-signing yesterday near President Bush's Crawford, Texas, ranch was a much more lonely affair.

Two very different views and two very different realities. Perhaps Mrs. Sheehan doesn't need to worry about anyone mistaking her for the "Rosa Parks" of the peace movement, as the media seems to be the only "crowd" gathered for her book signing?
