Finding 16 GOP Senators willing to compromise is baloney. Joe suggests using the John Edwards' Iraq strategy - keep sending the withdrawal bill and force Bush to compromise. Bush is in the tough spot because without a bill lack of funding will force a pull out now instead of next year.

In the first quarter of this year, more than 150 former Bush donors pitched in for Mrs. Clinton's campaign, while a similar number anted up for Mr. Obama, according to an analysis of Federal Election Commission data performed for The New York Sun by the Washington-based Center for Responsive Politics.
