Vetoing Iraq Leave

My soldier son was home last weekend on leave from his US Army service in Iraq. It was great to have him home - even if it was for a brief stay. Too bad that more folks in our government don't have the same sentiments. The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Thursday to require more leave for U.S. troops in Iraq, defying a veto threat from the White House that said it infringed on President George W. Bush's authority as commander in chief. Here is hoping that they have enough votes to override his veto.
