Levin And Warner Join Forces In Opposing Bush

It looks like Senators Carl Levin (D-MI) and John Warner (R-VA) have come to terms on a merging of their individual resolutions condemning the Bush-McCain Doctrine of escalating the war in Iraq.

The Senators announced agreement Wednesday on a compromise, non-binding Senate resolution that removes some of the harsh wording in the original by Levin, while still making it clear that the Senate does not support Bush's plan to send 22,000 more troops to Iraq.

I haven’t read the new resolution yet, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) seems to agree with it and says it will come to the Senate floor on Monday, with a very good chance of getting the bipartisan support needed to get 60 votes and pass.
