Anti-war advocates pin hopes on mom's protest


Asking whether she was "The New Face of Protest?" the liberal political magazine The Nation ran a photo in March of a middle-aged woman holding a picture of her 24-year-old son.


The answer from anti-war organizations as international media have spread the story of Cindy Sheehan, whose son Casey died last year in Iraq, is a resounding yes. The anti-war movement has eagerly grabbed the coattails of the 48-year-old Vacaville, Calif., mom camped in a drainage ditch along the one-lane road that leads to President Bush's vacation ranch.
