Anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan has met with a prominent lawmaker who supports the Iraq war.

Sheehan thanked Senator John McCain for meeting with her today, but she came away disappointed.

Sheehan, who calls the Vietnam veteran a "warmonger," says -- quote -- "he tried to tell us what George Bush would have said." And as she puts it, "I don't believe he believes what he was telling me."

The Arizona Republican also seemed disappointed in the Washington meeting. He says it had been misrepresented to him as including some of his constituents. Only one person in Sheehan's small delegation has ties to the state, and that person no longer lives there.

McCain says he might not have met with Sheehan had he known none
of his constituents was in the group. McCain describes the conversation as "a rehash" of opinions already well known.
