2006: With U.S. troops dying in record numbers in the Iraqi civil war, the American public's disgust with the Bush Administration is palpable. Even with the president's recent admission (after the nation's fifth mega-hurricane disaster) that global warming is real and his belated move to allow federal funding of the new stem-cell cures developed in Europe and Asia, his poll numbers continue to fall. In the November mid-term elections, Cindy Sheehan (the woman widely credited with kick starting the anti-Iraq-occupation movement) is swept into the U.S. Senate along with Democratic majorities in both houses. Long overdue investigations begin in earnest, and President George W. Bush is impeached and convicted in early 2007. Vice President Dick Cheney resigns immediately (having already cut a deal) to avoid Halliburton-related prosecutions. Member reactions:
Over my dead body would that hippie, al-quaida aide get in the senate.
Cosmic, I think it's more likely she'll get elected to the House. Pahunter, with someone like George Bush in the White House, how can you doubt that anything is possible.
raygregory, if you hate this country so much, why don't you move to Iraq, and take sheehan with you
Hey heckie3, back off...its a free country and just because someone disagrees with your right wing freak point of view does not mean that they hate the country....obviously its you who cant stand democracy...maybe you might consider leaving.....
