Will Bush Veto?

US Senate has just backed the Dem's Iraq troop "withdrawal" bill:
The US Senate has endorsed a March 31, 2008, target date for withdrawing American combat troops from Iraq, moving Congress a step closer to a showdown with President George W Bush over the war.

By a vote of 50-48, the Senate defeated an amendment that would have stricken the withdrawal language from a $US121.6 billion ($A150.37 billion) bill that mostly would fund the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. A final vote on the bill is expected later this week.

Bush has promised to veto any legislation with dates for withdrawing from Iraq, including a measure passed by the US House of Representatives on Friday.
