In the letter distributed yesterday evening to Senate leaders,

Noting the war could be the "most pressing issue of all time," the senators declared: "We will explore each of our options underneath the Senate procedures and practices to be sure the full and open debate."
The letter shipped to Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (DNev.) and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (RKy.) was not more specific concerning the Republican senators' technique for reviving the war debate. But underneath the chamber's rules, senators have wide latitude in slowing the progress of legislation along with offering amendments,

The letter began circulating yesterday evening after it became apparent the Senate was deadlocked in the war resolution and Reid was ready to move on to other matters. McConnell and several in his party have aggressively defended their decision to bar the bipartisan resolution as an issue of fairness because Democrats would not accept GOP procedural demands.
But some Republicans were uneasy about appearing to possess stymied the debate. The letter appeared so suddenly that,

"Monday's procedural vote should not be interpreted because lessening in our resolve to travel forward advocating the concepts" of the resolution, the letter said. "The current stalemate is unacceptable to all of us and the people of the country."
House Democratic leaders are attempting to formulate their very own nonbinding expression of disapproval of Bush's decision to deliver an additional 21,500 troops to address,

A top-notch Pentagon leader weighed in yesterday about the war debate and gave the impression to undercut the argument advanced by the White House and several GOP lawmakers a congressional debate challenging the Bush plan would hurt troop morale.
"There's undoubtedly in my mind the dialogue throughout Washington strengthens our democracy. Period," Marine Gen. Peter Pace, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testified before the House Military Committee. He added that potential enemies usually takes some comfort through the rancor but said they "don't have a clue how democracy works."
Congress is grappling with several nonbinding resolutions, which addresses Bush's deployment plan, at the same time public support to the war declines and scenarios on the floor grow increasingly perilous. The talk has particularly vexed Republicans, who will be reluctant to abandon Bush with a critical moment but who also regard the party's defeat in the November midterm elections being a signal that voters want Congress to challenge White House war policy more aggressively.
The Senate was poised to debate a nonbinding resolution opposing the additional troop deployment and with a diplomatic initiative to the conflict in Iraq. Republicans refused to allow the resolution to succeed in the ground, depending upon an ordinary procedural objection. By showing party solidarity, they had hoped to pressure Democrats into allowing the glory of other nonbinding measures, namely two that are more supportive in the administration's policy. But Democratic leaders refused to relent, as well as the longawaited war debate  or at least the opening chapter  ended nearly as soon since it began.Related articles:
