De-authorizing the War

Sen Hillary Clinton (D-NY) is teaming with Sen Robert Byrd (D-WV) on a plan to de-authorize the Iraq War.

"The American people have called for change, the facts on the ground demand change, and the Congress has passed legislation that requires change. It is time to sunset the authorization for the war in Iraq. If the president will not bring himself to accept reality, it is time for Congress to bring reality to him." -- Sen Clinton, quoted by CNN from Senate floor speech
The White House refers to the idea as "politics '08-style." (CNN)
