      I have a vivid memory of standing on the sidewalk during our weekly vigil in the months leading up to the war, and of the woman next to me asking, "How much of the public do you think we represent?" I said that, locally (western Virginia), we were probably a third or a little more, with a pretty solid 40-45 percent with Bush, and the rest swinging with events: against the war as long as it looked possible for war to be avoided, with it as it became clear it was inevitable.

      I finished by saying I thought that was a very encouraging level of hard-core opposition considering the state of fear the country had been kept in by this government and the cheerleading media. She seemed to take a bit of encouragement from that, so I didn't share the other thought in my mind right then: "We're going to be right here on this sidewalk years from now, with public opinion clearly on our side."
