"We must heed the results of the November elections and the wishes of the American people," said Majority Leader Harry Reid (news, bio, voting record).

Reid, D-Nev., spoke moments before a vote that sidetracked a nonbinding measure expressing disagreement with Bush's plan to deploy an additional 21,500 troops to Iraq.

The vote was 49-47, or 11 short of the 60 needed to go ahead with debate, and left the fate of the measure uncertain.


First of all, Harry, just because your party picked up the Senate and House doesn't mean you are now the president. That job is already taken. You don't get to order a complete surrender to the enemy. Try again in 2008.

Second, If the 'people had spoken', as you claim, then your party would have the votes needed to pass this resolution.

But they don't, do they? And they didn't, did they? Think you can overturn a presidential veto?

I don't.
