Date Certain

I'm not sure you noticed, but both the Democratic House and Senate have passed measures calling for US troops to be withdrawn from Iraq by a date certain in 2008. Now details differ on the date, force of the measure, etc, but odds are that the next "emergency" funding measure (What, they didn't see this coming?) that goes to Bush will mandate withdrawal. Bush, of course, has already said he would veto the measure. Of course, the measure would also include something like 122 billion dollars for the Iraq war, so after the veto comes the part where both sides blame the other for not supporting the troops.
