WASHINGTON - Democrats are moving unflinchingly toward a high-stakes veto fight with President Bush over the Iraq war as the Senate wraps up work on legislation ordering combat troops home from Iraq.

"This Congress is taking the responsible course and responding to needs that have been ignored by your administration and the prior Congress," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid wrote in a letter to Bush.

Great picture! He's gotten so use to having what he's wanted that he must really be having withdrawl pains.

I just hope the Democrats can pull things together--it really would like there to be two or three more parties to emerge and none of them be in a position where they can take things for granted.

BTW, Thanks for not gloating over Carolina's loss, but I don't promise to return the favor! ;)

I don't think that it is right that they added so much pork. This political system is just bullshit.

sage~ Dems seem to be getting their act together. Instead of taking one step forward and two back, it's now more like two forward and one back. {fingers crossed}

bbc~ yep, it's the old "you scratch my back, i'll scratch yours" bullshit!
