Cindy Sheehan, who is challenging House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for the 8th Congressional district, achieved ballot access last week, the first major hurdle of the campaign. This political ad, posted on YouTube attacks Pelosi for blocking impeachment discussions and not inhibiting war spending. It was not produced by the Sheehan campaign but it is representative of her supporters' enthusism.
Pelosi has just released a new book, "Know Your Power: A Message to American Daughters." whose sales are off to a very slow start. Her book tour is haunted by anti-war and pro oil drilling activists. While pundits do not see Pelosi losing this upcoming re-election, she clearly will not be getting a free ride.
