Reid Fails

Thursday, March 15, 2007
I like the sound of that. Over at Power Line I came across the following news:

Harry Reid's resolution, which called for the withdrawal of all but a limited number of U.S. forces from Iraq by March 31, 2008, has failed. The Senate rejected it by a vote of 50-48.

UPDATE: The Gregg Amendment, which I understand calls says that Congress should not eliminate or reduce funds for troops in the field, has passed 82–16. The Murray Amendment, which I understand calls for Congress to provide funds for training, equipment and other support for troops in the field, has passed 96-2.

JOHN adds: The roll call on Reid's resolution is here. The only Republican who voted for it was Gordon Smith of Oregon. Democratic defectors were Joe Lieberman, Ben Nelson and Mark Pryor.
