Why isn't the Democratic Leadership camping in Crawford?

Where are they? Why are they not in the trenches with Cindy Sheehan? They are as guilty as Bush for ignoring her grief.

Why aren't they listening to her questions? Most of them supported the war and voted to send our children to Iraq. If the President of the United States will not hear Cindy Sheehan, the Democrats who voted to support this war should get themselves to Crawford and listen to her. They should be camping out with her. Where are they?

They are going to have to answer for their decisions to support this war. They need to stop marching, no, make that goose-stepping with the Republicans in support of this war.

They need to spend part of their vacation in Crawford with people who are gathering and seeking answers. They need to supply answers. They need put up a tent and camp out in Crawford.

This is why we don't hear from them. Washington seems to be a town based on intransigence, and power. No one is authorized to change their mind, ever and most of them are told what to think by their "gang" leaders. The entire barn needs to be cleaned out.
