I lost a lot of respect for G.W.Bush when he refused to meet face to face with Cindy Sheehan, even when she was camped at the foot of his driveway. I realize that she was an activist, but she also was the mother of a fallen soldier. Bush could have at least walked to the end of his driveway and talked to her for a moment, or better yet invite her in for a cup of coffee. It would have been the classy thing to do.

Even if Cindy Sheehan had ranted and raved at Bush for a couple of minutes, would that have been such a heavy price to pay, especially when compared to the price that Army Specialist Casey Sheehan paid?

Bush handled the situation like a coward in my opinion.
