    Even if ALL the Dems voted against it, it would be vetoed and they don't have the 2/3rds majority needed to override Bush's veto.

    It's kinda early in the day to be drinkin' and postin', ain't it?

    I don't know the answer. Maybe. If it doesn't pass, there's nothing to veto.

    But didn't Bush veto it last year when they tried to tie in a date for getting the troops out?
