It‘s pure politics......Now she doesn't want to talk to Pres. Bush [Cindy Sheehan]

OLBERMANN: Last question. It‘s pure politics. The nature of the media coverage you‘re getting now, the response from other families of soldiers killed in Iraq, all of that, from the perspective of your protest there, in a way, isn‘t it really better if President Bush doesn‘t meet with you?

SHEEHAN: I would think so, yes. I think it [the media coverage]‘s great. And if he would come out right now, it would really defuse the momentum, and I don‘t want to give them any hints. And I think that‘s something they‘ve probably already thought about.

Sounds like she really does know how to work the crowd, and the media.

IMO This quote just absolutely proves she doesn't really want to talk to Pres. Bush, she just wants to keep the media covering her so she can make Pres. Bush look bad.
