Cindy Sheehan Has a Lot of Ground to Make Up

Cindy Sheehan has declared her candidacy in opposition to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but according to early polling, she's not exactly the favorite:

In an election for the U.S. House of Representatives, with Nancy Pelosi running as a Democrat, and Cindy Sheehan running as an independent, which describes you?

I would vote for Pelosi, no matter who the Republican is 66%

I would vote for Sheehan no matter who the Republican is 9%

I would need to know who the Republican is... 21%

Not sure 4%

I see the glass half-full: after electing Ms. Pelosi for so many years, who would have thought the voters of the 8th district had the sense to reject Ms. Sheehan?
