One interesting thing about the Cindy Sheehan story is that it is potentially such an easy opportunity for Bush to score political points. The big focus is on why he won't meet with her. Well, it would be pretty darned easy for him to meet with her. A lot easier than, say, making any headway in the Iraq debacle. So it is a politician's dream: he is facing growing demands that he do something that would be incredibly easy for him to do.
Maybe that is where we're headed. But between Bush's mania for showing that he never gives in or changes his mind, and, I am guessing, a feeling of terror about having to leave his protective bubble for a few minutes and meet a woman who is angry at him because she lost (he lost) her son, perhaps this incredibly easy thing is more than he can do. We will see.
