Cindy Sheehan, the woman who's become a rallying point for the anti-war movement, is back in California after abruptly leaving her protest vigil outside President Bush's ranch in Texas.
She flew back to Los Angeles after learning her mother had suffered a stroke, but says she'll resume her protest, "if it's possible."
Sheehan's son Casey was killed in Iraq last year and she's been demanding a face-to-face meeting with Bush to air her grievances. Bush has said he sympathizes with her. And the White House said again Thursday that he supports her right to protest but has no plans to change his schedule to meet with her.
Sheehan's makeshift vigil camp has grown to about a hundred people.
Among those who disagree with Sheehan's protest, is Deborah Jones, who is son is a Marine. Jones says Sheehan doesn't speak for her or other military families who support the troops and their mission.
