Bay Area Woman Gets Support With Protest
(CBS 5) A Bay Area woman's peace vigil outside of President Bush's ranch is gaining momentum.
Cindy Sheehan of Vacaville says she will stay outside the Crawford, Texas ranch until President Bush meets with her. Now a growing number of people -- including two women from Southern California -- have come to camp out alongside Sheehan in support of her cause.
Sheehan says realistically, she does not expect President Bush to talk with her. But she says she is getting her message across.
"Sixty-one, 62 percent of the American people believe that Iraq was a mistake, and they believe that the troops should be coming home," said Sheehan. "This is giving them something to do, something to focus on, and a way to get their voices heard."
Sheehan's son Casey died on duty in Iraq last year.
