9. Done and kicked
She was a catalyst who put a human face on the suffering Bush's little adventure has caused.

He showed callous indifference by ignoring Cindy's presence at his gate -- I am still astonished that he did not simply make a kind gesture; not because I think Bush is kind, but because it would have been very simple to have defused and undercut Cindy's purpose for being there.

And people saw that callous indifference, too.

While Cindy was camped out in Crawford, a friend of mine said that she believed that was the moment the tide turned. I was afraid to let myself believe it then -- instead, I felt that way when Jack Murtha gave his recent press conference. Still, I think my friend was right about that moment in Crawford Texas: the tide started to turn when she walked through those ditches in that hellish August heat.
