It's hard to know, but I think that Harry Truman would have met Cindy Sheehan. I think that Dwight Eisenhower would have. He knew about military sacrifice -- the horror and complexity of it. [snip]
Ronald Reagan would have stopped his car, if for no other reason that to hold Cindy Sheehan for a few moments, to express the regrets of a nation that her son was lost, and to thank her -- even though he might not have made her and many of us believers in this war.
Bill Clinton would have had Cindy in to the ranch and made a summit of it.
George Bush drove by. . .on the way to a fundraiser. Shameful.
He should have stopped, made a gesture -- even if she stood on the opposite side of his policies.
He-whom-shall-not-admit-a-mistake is unfit to lead our great country. He is a disgrace.
