Is a McKinney/Sheehan ticket happening?
April 30, 2011 in Presidential Campaign
A relatively new Facebook page has been created to support a Presidential/Vice Presidential ticket of Congresswoman McKinney for Prez and Cindy Sheehan for Veep. Is this a real effort? The answer is below the fold…
In the “Discussion” section of the Facebook page you’ll find this exchange:
I saw this group and just had to join. I can’t brain today. I have the dumb. Is this an effort to draft the two, or is there an actual campaign now taking shape?
Hi Michael, Cynthia has asked people to contact her if they wish to support her run for the Presidency and, when questioned by another, Cindy “won’t rule out” the possibility of running with her. So, there you have it. They both know I will stop when or if they wish me too. :)
This article at Fire Dog Lake by El Duderino about the possible draft effort includes this observation:
Ms. McKinney and Ms. Sheehan represent something that is lacking in most Democrats today, moral principles. And if recent arguments here are any indication, that is anathema to blogosphere talking heads.
One reason this effort has some credibility is that the administrators of the FB page include Anita Stewart, Green Party member from Florida and Soil and Water Commissioner Hillsboro County, and Cindy Sheehan herself.
