The Evolving War Resolution

Fecke reports on the compromise resolution by GOP Senator Warner that is gaining steam(via WaPo):
Democratic and Republican opponents of President Bush’s troop-buildup plan joined forces last night behind the nonbinding resolution with the broadest bipartisan backing: a Republican measure from Sen. John W. Warner of Virginia.

Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-Nev.) announced the shift, hoping to unite a large majority of the Senate and thwart efforts by the White House and GOP leaders to derail any congressional resolution of disapproval of Bush’s decision to increase U.S. troop levels in Iraq by 21,500.

Although the original Democratic language was popular within the party, it had little appeal among Republicans. Warner’s proposal drew support from both sides, and it was retooled last night to maximize both Democratic and Republican votes.
I have made it pretty clear where I am on the 'Surge':
I may be in the minority, but I am willing to give President Bush till November, and then I expect a timetable for redeployment. Iraq needs to take ownership, and we will now give them a deadline, not open ended promises.
With that in mind, I would vote 'No' on this resolution. But Fecke begs the question:
will Norm support the Warner resolution, or will he oppose it?
To which the answer is clear, BOTH! *laughing*
