Democrats with backbone? Why, yes

The House voted this afternoon, 218-212, to set a timetable on the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq. President Bush has already denounced the bill as "political theater" and promised he will veto it, and House Republicans, all but two of whom voted against the bill, have offered their predictable "the Democrats don't support the troops" criticism.

The president is apparently concerned that the legislation somehow "undermines" the progress that we've made in Iraq.
