Meanwhile, Democrats met with President Bush today to discuss the Iraq supplemental today but neither side relented from their previous position. Despite predictions and calls for Democrats to "soften" their stance, Democrats will send the Iraq supplemental to Bush sometime next week with a withdrawal provision currently being hammered out by House and Senate negotiators. Here's what Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (who has shown excellent leadership on this) had to say about Bush:
"We believe he must search his soul, his conscience and find out what is the right thing for the American people," Reid said, standing outside the White House. "I believe signing this bill will do that."
Hopefully, today's carnage in Iraq will help him see the light.
UPDATE (Xanthippas): And the bombings continue today.
