YOU THINK MAYBE IT'S TIME FOR THE DEMOCRATS...:

Senate Republicans defeat Iraq withdrawal bill (AP, 7/18/07)

Senate Republicans on Wednesday scuttled a Democratic proposal ordering troop withdrawals from Iraq in a showdown that capped an all-night debate on the war.

The 52-47 vote fell short of the 60 votes needed to cut off debate under Senate rules. It was a sound defeat for Democrats who say the U.S. military campaign, in its fifth year and requiring 158,000 troops, cannot tame the sectarian violence in Iraq.


...to stop summering on the Chattooga?
