    Obama To Support Feingold Amendment Cutting Off War Funding
    Obama will vote for the Feingold amendment:

    “Tomorrow, I expect cloture votes on two other proposals. One is the Reid-Feingold plan, which would begin a withdrawal of troops in 120 days and end all combat operations on April 1. The other is Senator Levin's proposal, which would create standards and benchmarks for additional funding.”

    “I will support both, not because I believe either is the best answer, but because I want to send a strong statement to the Iraqi government, the President and my Republican colleagues that it's long past time to change course.”

    “Meanwhile, I'll continue to press for my own plan, and work to find the 16 votes in the Senate to pass it with a veto-proof majority and bring our troops home quickly, safely and responsibly.”

    reines: Good for Obama! This is exactly what Democrats need to do- just keep pushing, pushing, pushing......and know that a clear majority of the country is behind them.

    Sen. Clinton will also support Feingold ammendment:

    Senator Clinton has joined fellow presidential candidate Sen. Obama, and has signalled her support for the Feingold-Reid amendment:

    "Tomorrow, I will cast my vote to send the President a clear message: Democrats are united in fighting to change course, redeploy our troops out of Iraq, and end this war as soon as possible.

    "When the Senate votes on motions to allow debate on both the Feingold-Reid and Reed-Levin Amendments, I will vote for cloture on both. I do so because we, as a united party, must work together with clarity of purpose and mission to begin bringing our troops home and end this war."
