Now we know why Sen. Feinstein agreed to filibuster
Apparently Sen. Feinstein was frightened by the threat of non-other than the deep intellect of Cindy Sheehan. We can only hope that Ms. Sheehan changes her mind and runs anyway.
Cindy Sheehan to Dianne Feinstein:okaaaay.
Fillibuster Alito or I’ll Challenge Your Senate Seat
Caracas, Venezuela - Gold star mother Cindy Sheehan has decided to run against California Senator Diane Feinstein if Feinstein does not filibuster the Supreme Court nomination of Judge Samuel Alito. While in Venezuela attending the World Social Forum, Sheehan learned that several Democratic Senators had announced their plans for a filibuster but that Senator Feinstein, who’s up for re-election in November, had stated she would vote against the nomination but not filibuster it. “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.
