A Cease Fire? This They Can Agree On
They may have been at each other's throats all week in South Carolina, but there is one thing Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama can agree on easily--the need to prevent President Bush from committing the country to long-term military involvement in Iraq without congressional approval.

The two senators and presidential hopefuls first discussed the topic publicly during the hotly contested January 15 debate in Las Vegas, when Clinton appeared to catch her rival off guard by inviting him to co-sponsor legislation requiring the president to acquire just such an okay. Obama responded by saying that the two of them could "work on that" and then followed up his talk with quick action--signing on Tuesday as third co-sponsor of the former First Lady's legislative proposal.

Who says George W. Bush is not a great uniter of people!
