If this were a dance

It couldn't get much more choreographed.

Cindy Sheehan has come out blazing away at the "pro-war" Hillary Clinton. What is amazing is that some of the words actually are true. Often misplaced or stupidly simple, but some are true.
First, speaking of Hillary, Cindy says:

But I don't think she can speak out against the occupation, because she supports it.

Well, that is very good reasoning Cindy. Most would probably come to the same assumption, which begs the question. Why say something so simply obvious?

Because this is exactly the perception they want. As one rube was quoted in response:
Who would have thought that Hillary's candidacy could be in trouble because she's not far enough to the left?"
It all seems so choreographed. Hillary has been trying to move her image, not her views but how she is perceived, to the center. She is too far out on the radical fringe, so a makeover is needed. And what better to serve the purpose than a loudmouth peacenic whose 15 minutes of fame just expired.
