GOP Infighting Over the Surge

Republicans appear deeply divided over a resolution to condemn President Bush's Iraq plans.

Ten Republicans met behind closed doors for an arm twisting session with Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY). But afterwards, those attending said there was no agreement between the Republicans on what to do.

Sen Chuck Hagel (R-NE) has already joined Democrats in helping draft the resolution. Sen Olympia Snowe (R-ME) has also signed on to co-sponsor the resolution putting the Senate on the record as opposing the President's "troop surge" plans. (AP via Yahoo!)
