86-13 & 60-39

In an 86-13 vote, the Senate turned back a Democratic proposal that would require the administration to withdraw all combat troops from Iraq by July 1, 2007, with redeployments beginning this year.


The Senate also rejected a second amendment that had a longer and more open-ended schedule for withdrawal. That failed 39-60.

What a shocker! NOT.
The US Senate again rejects a timeline for retreat from Iraq.
The 86 have enough brains to allow conditions on the ground, control when US Troops leave Iraq.
And at least 6 Democrats have the sense vote against 'retreat and defeat'.
