The New York Times has a story that indicates that the Democrats will push for a pullout from Iraq in 2008:

Democratic leaders in the House and Senate began a new legislative push today for the withdrawal of combat troops from Iraq in 2008, coalescing behind a fixed timetable to end the war for the first time since assuming power.
The plan to establish a specific date for removing troops intensifies the confrontation with the Bush administration at a time when Congress is scrutinizing President Bush’s request for nearly $100 billion in additional spending toward military operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Republicans vowed to block the new Democratic effort, though, which they said amounted to micromanaging the war, and the White House immediately signaled its opposition.....

Those Republicans just want the war to go on f-o-r-e-v-e-r. Apparently, the GOP has not seen the polls that show that the American people want our troops home NOW.
