The AP isn't happy. Check out the first line in the story:
WASHINGTON (AP) – Congress plunged into divisive election-year debate on the Iraq war Thursday as the U.S. military death toll reached 2,500. The Senate soundly rejected a call to withdraw combat troops by year's end, and House Republicans laid the groundwork for their own vote.In a move Democrats criticized as gamesmanship, Senate Republicans brought up the withdrawal measure and quickly dispatched it – for now – on a 93-6 vote.
"Gamemanship?" More like "Let's see the Dems replay the Vietnam pullout." Hah. NO way most of the Dems would go on record against the will of the American people. Heh-heh-heh.

Update: Pullout also rejected by the House, though not as dramatically: 256-153.
